This is a PRIVATE CCIS and Bechtel International Center event open to all Stanford international graduate students, post docs, visiting scholars, and local CCIS members.

Global Chefs participants prepare a dinner that is served to the chefs and the first 45 people who sign-up to attend. The dinner is FREE. In the past we have prepared cuisines from 14 different countries with the help of chefs across 16 different languages.

Global Chefs is a joint program of The Community Committee for International Students and The Bechtel International Center. Special thanks for the support provided by the Billie Achilles Fund.

Parents: It's okay for the chefs to bring in their kids - as long as the children are closely monitored around tools and heating appliances.
