On March 23, in order to celebrate the recent Spring Break academic trip to Florence, we put on an Italy Night! In addition to delicious foods and drinks, students were given a culinary delight which they were tasked with researching and presenting on. These presentations ranged from appetizers like Tuscan bread (which is unique for not having any salt), to the classic standards of Italian dining--like spaghetti, lasagna, risotto, etc--to desserts like tiramisu and panna cotta, to drinks (as no Heritage Studies event would be complete without caffe and vino).
While classic Italian music was blaring in the background, there was some disagreement over how to brown the garlic (left) while others began
preparing for the meal (right)
With about 25 special guests in attendance (because who really wants to plan a dinner for more than 25 people?) the night was most definitely a success.
