Exploring modern techniques, operational efficiency, and vegetarian cuisine, the Royal Danish Embassy, in coordination with Community World Service Asia and Diet Studio by COTHM organized a ‘food hackathon’ on 18th October.
The hackathon’s key objectives were to raise awareness on preventing the mounting prevalence of Diabetes and obesity in Pakistan due to poor eating habits and educate, train, and inspire Pakistanis to implement healthy eating and cooking habits.
The workshop was conducted by a renowned Danish Chef, Casper Bogeskov. “By doing one simple thing, we are addressing three major issues,” said Casper. He cited the three issues as individuals’ health, environmental conservation, and personal economics.
On the day, the participants enjoyed learning delicious vegan Pakistani dishes and environmental concerns that are usually ignored during cooking. Following the hackathon, the participants pledged to review their current and emerging knowledge on the concept of sustainable diets within the field of food and nutrition.
