The second phase was done on the 2nd of December by Rotaract club of Alexandria Marine-Star (R.I.D 2451) by making five of the recipes in the cookbook.

These recipes are: moussaka, lasagna, taboula, pissadelera, and kibba!
The gathering was very culture oriented where several games were played to enhance the clubs knowledge of the Med MDIO and the culture of the Mediterranean countries. Learning the cultures of these countries had a great impact on everyone and broadened their horizons.
