Culinary Living & Learning Community

The Culinary Living & Learning Community is a highly selective opportunity to take an active role in immersing yourself in life in Copenhagen through the lens of food culture and cooking.

This is your ideal community if you are self-directed with an interest in exploring your inner-foodie in Denmark while building a community through cooking together in and outside the house.

Commitment and Community

Being in the Culinary LLC means committing yourself to weekly meetings, planning and attending culinary related events throughout the semester, and actively engaging with the broader Copenhagen community through your passion for food.

You will be challenged to build a community with a shared identity and values within a study abroad context, one that challenges the way you see yourself and your own identity.

Learning Objectives for the Culinary LLC

  • Form a community where it is part of your everyday life to explore a variety of aspects of Danish food culture
  • Gain more confidence in your own cooking abilities while trying out new recipes from Danish and international cuisine
  • Reflect on your discoveries, while constructing an understanding of Nordic food culture. Relate and compare your new knowledge to what you know from your home culture
  • Share your knowledge and experiences with fellow students
