We’re having a party, and you’re invited! 2021 marks 50 years of DAAD in the USA, and to celebrate, we’re hosting a big, virtual dinner. We need your contributions! #WhatsKochen invites students enrolled full-time at universities in Canada and the US to submit video entries via TikTok to our 2021 contest.

As the past year has kept many of us at home, unable to travel to faraway destinations and try different cuisines, it’s given us a whole lot of time to get creative in the kitchen! If you’ve been missing Germany and its culinary traditions, now’s your chance to kick that Fernweh and get cookin’! Whip up your favourite German-inspired dish, document the process on TikTok and make sure to both follow us @daadnorthamerica and use the hashtag #WhatsKochen so we can find your entry.

You submission enters you to win one of our top three prizes! The submission with the most likes at the end of June 2021 will win our first-place prize, a round-trip flight to Germany. The creator of the videos with the second and third highest amount of likes will receive gift cards to GermanDeli.com.

Again, don’t forget to include the hashtag #WhatsKochen, follow us on TikTok @daadnorthamerica and submit your entry between June 1 and 20, 2021.

Viel Spass und guten Appetit!
