What's Cookin' With GeoVisions Work and Travel?

What’s Cookin’?  GeoVisions brings thousands of students to the U.S. on the GeoVisions Work and Travel programs every year.  In October and November, we venture to Asia to start interviewing students in Thailand, the Philippines and Taiwan who will come to America next spring and summer.  We bring recruiters from major U.S. Theme Parks and Resorts.  They tell university students about seasonal jobs and what it’s like to live and work in America for a few months. At GeoVisions, it’s important to help employers learn about international cultures as well.  This year, we hosted our guests to an afternoon at the world famous Baipai Thai Cooking School in Bangkok.  So, in between interviewing 400 students, we got a chance to learn about Thai spices (add four chilies to the soup and it’s HOT!), how to make coconut milk, perfect knife skills ... And eat what we cooked!  Tom Yum Geung, Pad Thai, Tom Kha Gai, and spicy fish cakes! Wherever you travel, try to hook up at a local cooking school.  Cuisines are a perfect reflection of a culture ... So it’s a good, and tasty, way to learn.
