UWS international students bring global eats to Superior
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.
