25-05 Multicultural Cookbook to Celebrate Community Diversity

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is calling for recipe submissions from within the community to be compiled into a multicultural cookbook.

The cookbook will be produced as a way for Kalgoorlie-Boulder residents to celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the community in the absence of the annual Multicultural Festival.

City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said the City had had to make the call to cancel the popular event in 2020 to ensure community safety during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

“We know Kalgoorlie-Boulder is a real melting pot of different cultural groups from around world, and we still want to celebrate this diversity, albeit in a safe, socially distanced way, and this has inspired the production of this free community cookbook,” Mr Walker said.

“This has always been a multicultural city, with a long tradition of people coming from all over the world to experience the golden opportunities the region has to offer, and the cookbook, called The Melting Pot, will allow the community to share and enjoy different cultural delicacies they might not normally have access to.”

Recipe submissions close on Monday, 8 June 2020 and The Melting Pot will be published as a free, online cookbook.  

Residents can submit their recipes through the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder website at www.ckb.wa.gov.au/TheMeltingPot.
