Acronyms have long been a favorite among policy wonks, and, inspired by the newest one in development circles, “MIST” (the growing economies of Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey), we focused the most recent cooking workshop on June 23, 2012 on Mexican and South Korean cuisines—similar ingredients and complementary tastes. See photos of what a fun and delicious time was had by the 14 participants on June 23.
Our teacher, Dr. Yoon Jung Park, a sociologist by day and excellent cook by night, hails from southern California and grew up under both Korean and Mexican influences.
Unity Walk’s Diverse Cuisines extends the mission of 9/11 Unity Walk—unity through expressions of diversity—by bringing people together to experience a variety of foods and the traditions which accompany them.

Diverse Cuisines 2011
In the first year of Diverse Cuisines, participants enjoyed Indian cooking in the Vaisnava Hindu tradition as well as a Moroccan dinner and will continue to explore different cultural cuisines. Diverse Cuisines is experiential education which engages the minds—and tastes—of those involved.
