Mamaliga cu Braza from Romania, Turkish sekerpare, Australian fairy bread and palau from Iran: this semester’s International Dinner began at the Moritz restaurant, which is right next to the central refectory on HoPla, on Friday 12 May at 7 p.m. The main idea behind the International Dinner is simple – each person brings a dish made in their home country/culture for the buffet and each participant will be able to try the favourite dishes of people from all over the world. Afterwards, we agree on which dish was the best! Votes are awarded for the most delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian contestant and the best dessert. The International Dinner at the Moritz Restaurant is a joint project organised by the Student Services Organisation, the Welcome Centre and the Buddy Programme. The hosts of this event are looking forward to seeing students from around the world and, naturally, the creative dishes that they bring with them!
