Northwest College International Programs invites area residents to “Taste the Nations” with an evening of international cuisine and wine sampling.

Guests will enjoy a three-course dinner in the company of students from different countries throughout the world including Brazil, Turkmenistan, Spain, Kuwait, Germany, Russia and more. Students will share information about their cultures through table displays, demonstrations and lively conversation.

The menu for the evening includes assorted crostini and egg rolls for appetizers, followed by a vichyssoise soup. The main entree features a Ugandan smoked beef brisket, with peanut sauce on the side, mashed plantains and root vegetables.

In addition, the evening also includes a raffle featuring a 10-day trip to Greece and Italy next spring, March 2-11, 2019. During the event, 100 raffle tickets will be sold for $100 each. The winner will be announced during Intercultural Program’s Turkmenistan Night Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Proceeds from the raffle and event will help support the new Global Passport Partners program whose purpose is to fund international student scholarships and NWC student travel.

Throughout the trip, travelers can plan to see famous attractions such as the Colosseum and the Acropolis, as well as the artwork of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel, plus much more.
