From Peruvian spaghetti to Chinese nan gao, fourth-graders at Huth Road Elementary School had the opportunity to sample ethnic dishes from around the world at the annual Heritage Luncheon held last week.
Every year, fourth-graders research their family background and then write a paper describing their family origins. The culmination of the project is the Heritage Luncheon, with donated food reflecting different nationalities. Parents act as servers, and parents, teachers and children enjoy tasting foods from many countries.
The choices were numerous this year. Students sampled such items as Ghanan chicken soup, Puerto Rican posta ligio, Polish oreshki, Dutch stroopwafel and Irish soda bread.
Other countries and areas represented included Germany, Cameroons, England, Ukraine, Italy, Greece, Canada, the Middle East, Mexico and France. (photos by Lee Cohen)
