International Tea Features Sweets from Around the World
April 08, 2010
Mount Union College students, faculty and staff had the unique opportunity recently to enjoy a variety of delectable deserts from places such as Japan, Korea, England, China and Europe.
Coordinated by Gayle Shaker, director of international student affairs, the first-ever International Tea, "Experience the Difference? Tea, Coffee, Sweets, Music from Asia and Europe," was an informal affair. According to Shaker, the purpose was for "everyone to try something different and enjoy the company."
The menu included scones from England, Austrian coffee and various other treats. Edith Riederer, a freshman from Germany, provided her mother's recipe for Linzer Torte, which was prepared by the dining hall staff. Laura Marsh's father sent a recipe for scones, which were served with jam and whipped cream. Marsh is a freshman from England. A variety of deserts were purchased from Young Oriental Food Market in Canton.
The event was held in celebration of International Education Week.
