8th Annual International Food Festival: Share a Dish, Share a Culture

krempita, jambalaya, kimchi rice, pakoras, pupusas...

Curious?? Ask your classmates from Bosnia, Louisianna, Korea, India and El Salvador (or skip to descriptions below.)

Adventurous?? Prepare a cultural dish to share at the 8th International Food Festival, Wednesday, April 16th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm in the Overlook Cafe on the 2nd floor of the CCV Burlington Pearl Street building. Consider your own cultural or ethnic heritage or one you know little about. Then research the foods of the region and prepare something you've always loved eating or something you've never tasted before.

Hungry?? Join us for our most popular springtime event and taste some amazing home cooked foods prepared by CCV students from nearly every continent on earth!

  1. I can't wait for all the great food this year. I'm even thinking of attempting a traditional Polish dish.
