Ready for the World Cafe Journeys into Africa

KNOXVILLE — The Ready for the World Café this week will journey into Africa –not only with a buffet of exotic foods, but also with a possible fundraiser for African causes.

The menu includes L’ham El Hlou (Algerian lamb dish), Mtuza wa Samaki (Kenyan curried fish), sweet potato pone, Moroccan chicken tagine with lemons and olives, Lasary Voatabia (Madagascarian salad), Ratatouille (Moroccan vegetable dish) and Egyptian rice with vegetables. The last three dishes are vegan.

Terry Williams, a junior in hotel, restaurant and tourism management, is the student manager for the week, and is trying to arrange for $1 from each meal sold to be donated to a charity for African causes.

The Ready for the World Café is open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each Monday through Thursday in the Hermitage Room on the third floor of the University Center at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Diners pay $11 for the all-you-can-eat buffet or $9 for a plate of food to carry out.
