Residence Life Event: Cultural Dinner


On Sunday, September 28th Chatham students are invited to gather on the Quad for a global meal. The food will be prepared by other students and will reflect their home culinary traditions.

To celebrate this festive meal the JKM Library is highlighting food writing and traditions from around the world! Check out the book display on the First Floor for essays, memoirs, and cookbooks reflecting the diversity of culture represented through food.

  • Que vivan los tamales! : food and the making of Mexican identity¬†— An historical approach to the shaping and influences of Mexican food culture.
  • Endless feasts : sixty years of writing from Gourmet¬†— Read about M.F.K. Fisher’s travels through Switzerland; Ray Bradbury’s musings on dandelion wine; and James Beard’s lesson in pasta.
