Students from the Olympus Boarding House recently embarked on a culinary journey to the United States with its American International Dinner. Students eagerly gathered to indulge in classic American dishes, savouring the quintessential flavours that have become synonymous with American cuisine.
The iconic burgers and hot dogs were at the centre stage of the American International Dinner. Juicy, flame-grilled patties, sandwiched between fluffy buns, served as a testament to the art of the American burger. The succulent hot dogs, with their familiar snap, delighted students with their timeless appeal. These beloved staples brought forth the nostalgia of backyard barbecues and summertime gatherings.
Accompanying the main dishes, students had the option to choose from a selection of salads. The salads provided a refreshing contrast to the hearty burgers and hot dogs. The vibrant colors and flavours added a wholesome touch to the meal, satisfying both the taste buds and the health-conscious.
No American feast would be complete without indulging in desserts, and Olympus students were treated to an array of delectable treats. Cookies, freshly baked to perfection, were a crowd favourite with their chewy centres and heavenly flavours. Apple cake, infused with warm spices and topped with a buttery crumble, provided a cosy and comforting finish to the meal, capturing the essence of American home baking.
As the students bid farewell to the American International Dinner, they carried with them the memories of a flavorful feast and a deeper understanding of the cultural diversity that enriches the world of food. Until the next international culinary adventure, let’s continue to explore the globe, one bite at a time. Enjoy!
