On Wednesday evening, faculty advisors, along with their student advisees, prepared special dishes for Orme’s annual International Potluck Dinner in Founders Hall. It was a perfect opportunity and way for our diverse student body to share a little about their country through food. The campus community shared culinary delights from Vietnam, Italy, France, Spain, China, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Russia and America. Dishes prepared included:
Spring Egg Rolls (Vietnam); Gnoocchi with garlic tomato sauce, and Seashell Noodles with olive oil, pepper and lemon (Italy); Sausage and Pasta Casserole, Ribs, Grilled Honey Teriyaki Kabobs, and Lemon Cookies (America); Crepes (France); Pancakes (Germany); Guacamole and Carne Asada (Mexico); Miso Soup (Japan); Seafood Paella and Spanish Tortilla (Spain); Dong Po Rou (China); and Pelmeni (Russia).
It was a wonderful community feast; an event which students and faculty look forward to each year.
