Italian, Russian and French fare are among this week’s choices at the Ready for the World Cafe.
The menu, designed by students Daniel Knopf and Aaron Swersky, will include pear and cucumber salad with balsamic vinegar and shaved Romano cheese; chicken Calabrese; beef stroganoff; cheddar cheese mashed potatoes; roasted winter vegetables; cod Dijonnaise; tomato, basil and cheese baked pasta; and assorted desserts. The cafe menu changes weekly.
The cafe—an international buffet—is operated by students in the advanced food production and service management class. ARAMARK prepares the food.
The cafe is open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in the Hermitage Room on the third floor of the University Center.
Diners pay $10 for the all-you-can-eat buffet or $8.50 for a plate of food to carry out.
The goal of Ready for the World is to transform the campus into a culture of diversity that best prepares students for working and competing in the 21st century. The initiative involves increasing the diversity among students, faculty and staff; infusing the curriculum with international and intercultural content; expanding study-abroad and work-study opportunities; and encouraging students to take advantage of all of these opportunities.
