YOUNG women tasted some of the world's most famous dishes to mark International Women's Day.
Those staying at YWCA, Heathway, Dagenham, sampled toad in the hole, Jamaican spicy chicken and other culinary treasures as part of the global celebration last week.
The residents, hailing from Iraq, Ghana, the Seychelles, the Caribbean and England, wore national dress as they joined in the annual awareness event to remember the economic, political and social achievements of women.
YWCA's deputy centre manager Blossom Burt said: "Everyone loves a good excuse to taste delicious food from all over the world, but this day was also a special reminder that women everywhere are overcoming hurdles and achieving things they never thought they would, whether big or small.
