Cook and Serve Your Dish
Description:
The International Dinner is an opportunity for people from various countries to participate in a cultural extravaganza – featuring food and entertainment from around the world. It is an opportunity to share your cultural background with others and provide a sampling of “homemade” food from other lands. And – it’s fun! You will be extending hospitality on behalf of yourself and your country. International Student and Scholar Services and the University YMCA are planning this event for approximately 250 people. Each participant is asked to cook either a main dish or a dessert from their country of origin (or both!). The budget for the main dish is $50.00 and for a dessert is $25.00. You decide what you want to make. The University YMCA will reimburse you for items purchased to prepare your dish up to the amounts listed above so please bring receipts. Your dish must serve 150 to 250 people – keep in mind that a very small spoonful is considered a portion! The idea is for attendees to be introduced to new flavors that they may not be familiar with. So while it sounds like a lot, it really is not that difficult to accomplish. Two large aluminum pans filled with your dish will be enough to give everyone a spoonful. You will need to cook your item at home and bring it to the University YMCA by 5:30pm on March 10. We will begin serving food AT 6pm, and attendees will begin to form the food line as soon as they arrive rather than waiting to be dismissed. It is important that you arrive by 5:30 to ensure that we are ready to serve at 6pm. There is no provision for heating up the food or keeping things warm so try to keep it hot by wrapping it in a blanket or towel over the foil. Also, please remember to bring along a serving utensil for your food. You will be assigned a place along the buffet line when you arrive. If you want to consider wearing colors or clothing that represent your country, you are more than welcome! There will be people on hand to direct and assist you when you arrive. After all of the paid attendees have passed through the line, cooks are encouraged to share their remaining food with one another. We also encourage you to stay to watch the performances, but due to seating restrictions, you will be limited to standing room only. If you have any questions, please contact Cynthia at intldinner@universityymca.org or call (217)337-1514. Thank you so much for volunteering your time and skills! Can't wait to see you there!
