  1. Mostly women of Timor-Leste are interested in cooking because inside the family itself, they are the ones who provide meals to the family members everytime. Some of them are being trained since they were young by their mothers and even participating to any ceremony or party in the community living.

    So, I am really impressed this Cookingcircle Program as it is truly endorsing the women or men for being professional cooks and gaining some income through this way.
