Cool stuff going on over at University Housing and Dining Services. In partnership with the Casa Latino/a de OSU, the Centro Cultural CÃ©sar ChÃ¡vez, the College Assistance Migrant Program‘s Multicultural Community and the Sabor Learning Community, Sabor Latino is a journey through culture and cuisine to help celebrate Latin and Caribbean culture. EntrÃ©e menu items included: Conch Fritters, Cuban Chicken, Jerk Pork Loin, Coconut Lime Tilapia, Vegan Pelau (tempeh, rice, pidgin peas and Hubbard squash), Yucca with garlic and lemon, Fried Plantains, Tropical Fruit Salad, Rice and Black Beans, Coconut Rum Cake, and other regional culinary favorites.
Office of Admissions staff members Dante Holloway, Alicia Ortega, Lizbeth Campos, Lindsay Mitchell, Megan Beresford and I were in attendance. We each sampled a little bit of everything (…ok, a lot of everything) on the menu and we all had nothing but rave reviews. They had music, entertainment, and even featured impromptu aisle dancing performances by UHDS representatives Jennifer ViÃ±a and Victor Santana-Melgoza. Great job to all those involved!
Thanks to President Jennifer for the photos!
