UWS international students bring global eats to Superior

Cooking with International students at UWS

World Student Association's International Cooking Demonstration at Pilgrim Lutheran Church.

Food has the power to bring people together across cultures. That’s why UW-Superior’s World Student Association is hosting an International Cooking Demonstration.

Karen Valdez, the Intercultural Programs Coordinator at UW-Superior, explains it’s a way for our international students to share a little piece of them.”

Tamami Igeta is an international student studying at UWS from Japan. She explains to The Lift, “The theme is a Taste of Home. So they actually get to taste the international student’s cooking can taste like they’re home, so not Americanized.”

Thirteen dishes will be featured Saturday from 9 countries- including South Korea, Japan, Columbia, Ecuador, India, Nepal, Ukraine, Mexico, Ethiopia, and Indigenous communities will also be represented.

University of Wisconsin-Superior students will prepare various international dishes at the World Student Association’s International Cooking Demonstration on Saturday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Superior.

Tickets, available at the door, are $5 for adults and free for children under 10. Pilgrim Lutheran Church is located at 820 Belknap Street in Superior.
