With the pandemic still affecting everyone’s life, the platform EverythingGoesVirtual.com was conceived to allow liked-minded people to interact, learn a new skill, and share interest safely – apart, yet together. The platform allows interaction without limitation on location, age, or race. More importantly, it is a medium to promote culture, understanding, and inclusivity through cooking. The first session this year kickstarts on January 29, 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Culture Tastic, a series of five themed episodes. Starting from the end of January with Yunnan cuisine celebrating Lunar New Year, kids’ baking in March during spring break, West coast cuisine and wine pairing for April, celebrate Mother’s Day in May to the much-anticipated Indigenous cuisine in June. It will be a hybrid event with the chef cooking at River Green Presentation Centre and participants cooking at the location or online (Provincial health guidelines strictly followed).
The event raises funds for local charity Richmond Cares Richmond Gives. The class size is kept small at 14 to offer an exclusive experience. EGV will send an ingredients box to each of the participants/families, with condiments measured. The public can participate by preparing their own ingredients and watch on the website and Facebook Live, photos and videos can be shared on the website and social media.
The first of the series, Festive Chinese Cooking, received wide media coverage, including CTV Vancouver at Six, CBC Radio-Canada, Vancouver Sun, The Province, Richmond News, Omni TV, Lahoo.ca, and Gourmet Vancouver. Full coverage can be viewed here.
The EGV platform strives to provide interaction between the chef and participants through live communication. For instance, the chef can review the progress of the participants and give live feedback. The participants can also type their questions and comments on Chat, or simply ask the chef “face to face”. It makes a big difference than to watch a cooking video on YouTube!
