Young Meets Old Culinary Heritage

In this project we are working with several partners around Europe to develop methods and materials for culinary heritage cooking sessions in which young and senior people meet each other and develop all kinds of new skills. The reasons for this project is that contacts between the old and young generations have changed and are sporadic. Older people miss digital competences and feel not included in society. Contacts between young en senior people is very helpful for senior people to feel included in the society and to develop digital skills.


Six partners will participate in this Project. Vocational Training Secondary School of Tourism “Dr. Vasil Beron” in Bulgaria is leader of the project. The other partners are Cork Education an training board in Ireland, Fachschulzentrum Freiberg-Zug in Germany, Skekacs Elemer a VET school from Hungary, Landwirtschaftliche Fachschule Mistelbach from Austria, GSOS Podborany from VET School from Czech Republic and ofcourse Blankcon from The Netherlands.
