Dining Services kicked off its ambitious International Dining Series in August with a menu reflecting the foods of the Caribbean. It was the first of eight special monthly dinners built around the foods of different regions. The meals are open to the public.
“Florida Tech is such a wonderfully diverse place that we thought it would be fun and informative to reflect some of that diversity in the meals we provide at Panther Dining Hall,” Dining Director Tom Stewart said. “That we can introduce some of these cuisines to the Space Coast community at large makes this even better.”
There will be educational materials posted in the dining hall during the monthly International Dining Series dinners. Entertainment reflecting that night’s geographic origins will be offered at some meals, as well.
In other international cuising happenings, Dining Services offered a special menu to mark the end of Ramadan in late July. The feast, called Eid al Fitr, drew more than 175 people – including President Catanese – and featured lamb kofta, pomegranate chicken, falafel and other Middle Eastern items.
