International Dinner: Master Chef Edition

Last week, Truman State University students were invitedĀ to the greatest cooking competition of the semester! International Club was the host for this year’s International Dinner, an evening where international students and members of international clubs are invited to prepare dishes from their home countries to share with the rest of campus. Dinner is also accompanied by several talented artists, performing songs and dances from across the world.

This year’s I-dinner celebration was themed as a cooking competition, in which guests would vote on their favorite international dishes! Students voted on their favorite appetizers, entrees, and desserts from 16 different countries! Try the winning dishes for yourself, and don’t forget to view the event photo gallery below!
