On Wednesday February 29, 2012, we held our first ever International Night which was hosted by current Green College resident Alicia. On this night Alicia brought us an amazing menu from the warm and beautiful country of Argentina. The amazing talent in our kitchen were able to replicate a meal that she has confirmed brought a bit of her home to all of the residents at dinner that night. For those of you want to try your luck to re-create this masterpiece, the names of the meals were Milanesas for people on the meat plan, and Milanesas de Berenjena for the vegetarian plan.
Residents at dinner that night broke up into teams of 4 to answer the two quiz and trivia games that Alicia and Roli had come up with. I can confirm that based on these games, very few people will want to take any future classes that either Alicia or Roli teach. Thanks for the creative and difficult questions that started up tons of interesting conversations at the dinner table.
Thank you Alicia for sharing a bit of your home with all of us, I have heard nothing but positive comments from people who loved the meal, the games, the laughs, and the chance to learn something more about Argentina.
The next international night is food that is a little closer to home and is scheduled for Thursday March 22 when we present a traditional Metis dinner. Green College resident Michelle will be our host that evening which is set to coincide with the law and society series lecture that is being provided by aboriginal legal scholar, Prof. John Borrows. See you all there.
