Starting your life abroad can be challenging at first. Homesickness and loneliness can really take a toll on you. I have been there, and I remember how much I craved home-food then. Going to a Japanese restaurant was truly a bliss and I wanted to eat everything on the menu, just so that I could feel like I was home.
Food is a part of your identity and you can find home whenever you are, just by cooking your favourite home-dish. It is also a unique asset that you have, that you can share with your new friends, colleagues or other expats. So don't feel like you need a special skill or the local language fluency to thrive in your life abroad. A homemade dinner can make you feel at home, and at the same time boost your social life and strengthen social bonds and help you integrate into your new life.
The world has become so global and it seems that anything is accessible from anywhere, yet home-cooked meal from different countries seems to be something that is still hard to find.
This is why I started Mai's cooking class -"SUSHI LESSON AT HOME". It gives chance for me to share what home-cooked sushi looks like, and it gives you the chance to learn something new that you can share with your friends and family. It also gives you an opportunity to mingle with like-minded people who are keen to learn about different culture, and food :)
