Around the World in 80 (Dishes)
DSU’s International club had a potluck on Friday, and there were so many foods from around the world. Some you may recognize, while others may look like something you would try. Here are all the delicious foods you missed.
Sauerkraut and Mashed Cauliflower
Sauerkraut is finely sliced cabbage that has been pickled and fermented. It has a sour taste and can have a very long-lasting shelf life, and is typically a German dish but can be seen in other dishes around the world.
Jalapeno Chicken is a sweet and spicy dish that is typically seen in Asia. Because of the spice, a nice glass of milk is recommended with this dish.
Rice Pudding with Almonds
Rice pudding is a dish made from rice mixed with water or milk and other ingredients such as cinnamon and raisins. It is found on many continents, especially Asia where rice is a staple. Some variants are thickened only with the rice starch, while others include eggs, making it a custard.
Curry Chicken and Rice
Rice and Curry is a popular dish in Southern India. This dish was mixed with chicken to add some extra flavor.
Dill Pickle Ham Rollups
This roll is typically an American dish and is made up of pickles wrapped in cream cheese and ham.
Graham Cracker and Chocolate Drizzle Dessert
This dessert is layered, with graham crackers on the bottom and pudding in between each layer of cracker. On top, there is a chocolate sauce drizzle to add flavor and a bit of flare.
Another American favorite is the popcorn chicken. This finger food is a great mix of two American favorites: Chicken and popcorn.
Tomato Herb Rice with White Beans and Spinach
This is a spicy vegetarian plate made with crushed red pepper, which is typically seen in Korean dishes.
Beef Irish Stew
This Irish Stew contains vegetable and, in this case, beef, but is sometimes made with Irish stout. It’s similar to Italian Wedding Soup but does not contain meatballs.
