CJ CheilJedang hosted a cooking class for housewives from multiracial families at its headquarters in Ssanglim, Seoul, Tuesday, one day ahead of Parents' Day.

CJ invited the housewives, from China, Vietnam, Mongolia and Japan, and their mothers-in-law. Eighteen women took part in the program, making Korean food.

A company official said the program was designed for the housewives to learn how to make Korean food and to have the chance to cement relations with their mothers-in-law in time for the Month of the Family.

After the cooking class, the women pinned carnations on their mothers-in-law to commemorate Parents Day.

CJ has been conducting events to promote Korean cuisine to multicultural families since January.
