Sabor Latino Event a Success!

April 17th, 2009

Cool stuff going on over at University Housing and Dining Services. In partnership with the Casa Latino/a de OSU, the Centro Cultural César Chávez, 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. Entrée 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 Viña and Victor Santana-Melgoza. Great job to all those involved!

Thanks to President Jennifer for the photos!
