We all enjoyed varieties of delicious food such as Swedish meatballs, Irish chicken stew, Puerto Rico – rice and gandules, Iraq’s noodles chicken & raising, French-Canadian meat pie, German dumpling, Nigeria’s rice, smoked salmon with onion, capers & cream cheese with dill, BBQ chicken wings, macaroni & cheese, oysters, brotchen- German sandwiches, spaghetti-es, sweet & sour cocktail meatballs, Swedish braid, Italian cookies, Russian cake, waffles, Viennese “Xmas Trees”, cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies, baklava, spicy pumpkin pie cookies, and brownies.
Our students had some excellent conversations about the food and the different flavors. This event was wonderful, with everyone feeling really good about all of the various foods. It gave everyone a chance to socialize around a multi-cultural event. We are proud of the students and this showed that they are proud of their heritage.
