On the 6th of December, the EU Delegation to the African Union, in Addis Ababa, launched the Africa-Europe cookbook. Present were AU and EU Member States Ambassadors and other diplomats involved in building the Africa-Europe partnership, journalists and cooks, among which prominent Ethiopian Chef Yohanis Gebreyesus.
The Africa-Europe Cookbook is a collection of 83 recepies from 70 countries in Europe and Africa. This collective work demonstrates that culture and food in particular is a strong diplomatic tool and unifying force.
The air of the Hyatt Regency's Hotel terrace in Addis Ababa was filled with most savoury aroma of African and European dishes and most of all positive and uniting energies.
