OGE’s signature event, the International Cook-Off Competition, is moving from International Education Week to I Heart Travel Week this year. The Cook-Off is scheduled for Wednesday, February 16th, 2022 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in the Kent Student Center Ballroom. Hosted by the Office of Global Education and supported by Kent State Dining Services, the Cook-Off will feature food and beverages from around the world. The event is free and open to all. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the food service will begin shortly thereafter.

The cook-off will feature six student culinary teams which will compete as finalists in the competition. Each team will prepare and present a different cultural entrée and beverage from its home country. The teams will compete for first-, second- and third-place awards, which will be determined by a team of three judges. In addition, the Cook-Off’s attendees will have the chance to vote for their favorite team and recipe for the People’s Choice Award. The announcements of the first, second and third place, as well as the People's Choice winners, will occur at approximately 7:45 p.m.
