Boarding students from Collège du Leman recently had the opportunity to embark on a culinary adventure through the Spanish International Dinner. This mouthwatering event showcased the diverse and vibrant flavours of Spanish cuisine, leaving everyone in awe of the delicious dishes that graced the tables.
The star of the evening was undoubtedly the Paella Royale, a true masterpiece that captured the essence of Spain. The saffron-infused rice, tender meats, and succulent seafood combined harmoniously to create a symphony of flavours that transported students to the sunny coasts of Valencia. It was a culinary journey that pleased both meat lovers and seafood enthusiasts alike.
For those with a penchant for seafood, the platters of mussels were a treat. Brimming with freshness and flavour, the mussels delighted students with their delicate yet savoury taste. The vegetarian paella, a colourful medley of seasonal vegetables, showcased the creativity and versatility of Spanish cuisine, catering to the preferences of all diners.
Also noteworthy was the quality of the desserts. The tantalising aroma of freshly made waffles and pancakes filled the air, and the students indulged in these crunchy delights, topped with a rich dulce de leche sauce, put the perfect sweet finishing touch to the meal, leaving the taste buds dancing with joy.
The Spanish International Dinner was not just about food; it was a celebration of culture and togetherness. Students and faculty gathered around the tables, sharing laughter, and stories, and creating lasting memories. The vibrant colours, lively music, and warm ambience reflected the spirit of Spain, fostering a sense of unity and appreciation for diverse cultures.
As the evening drew to a close, students left with satisfied palates and a deeper appreciation for the culinary delights of Spain. The Spanish International Dinner not only provided a delightful gastronomic experience but also served as a reminder of the rich tapestry of cultures that enrich our lives.
So, until the next international culinary adventure, let’s continue to explore the world one dish at a time. ¡Buen provecho!
