International Food Fair Worldly Cuisine Tempts Appetites Annual Fair Gives Students Change of Taste 64 Adobo. Somosa. Biryani. Yakitori. Houmos. Bakalavia. These were some of the foods students sampled during the food fair on the UC's patio. Students, faculty and staff eagerly crowded the booths to taste a piece of ethnic culture. "A minimum of 2,000 people were in and out. It was an impressive turnout," said International Student Organization President Hatim Abusineina. "I came for some home cooking," said senior bio-physics major Neil Bascon, who ate Filipino fare-lumpia, an egg roll and pancitm noodles with vegetables. Most of the organization's members proudly acknowledged making the food they served. Morris Cheng of the Chinese Students' Association said some members stayed up until 4 a.m., cooking. "My mother and I spent over five hours making everything," said Caribbean Student Organization President, Collette Dennis. She prepared curry chicken, spicy-jerk chicken and beef patties. The organization also sold Ginger beer, a bottled non-alcoholic Jamaican soda. Sandra Gonzalez, a sophomore business major, said she sampled as many different foods as she could. Gonzalez, who sampled spaghetti from Circolo Italiano, said, "The prices were good compared to what you get at the cafeteria." The theme of the fair was "Celebrating Our Diversity." Twenty colorfully designed booths representing each organization's country were an attraction on their own. A panel of 12 judges, composed of faculty, staff and student leaders, judged the organizations on their creativity, presentation of food, hospitality, costumes, and promptness. First place went to the Indian Students' Association whose booth was covered with sarees. Second place was the Pakistan Students' Association who sold out of food way before the fair was over. The Muslim Students' Organization, with their mosque replica, were the third place winners. The fair was co- sponsored by the Student Program Board.-Florian Raqueno Ho The Chinese Students' Association was just one of the twenty ethnic groups that took place in the annual i n I < u national food fair.
