AUS students attend Korean Food Festival
Twenty students from the Student Multicultural Learning Program and the Korean Cultural Club at American University of Sharjah (AUS) attended the Korean Food Festival held last month at The Address Dubai Marina Hotel. The food festival, aimed at introducing Korean food and culture to the UAE community, was organized by the Consulate General of Korea in Dubai. More than 15 famous Korean restaurants took part in the event, providing food samples to visitors, including signature Korean foods such as kimchi, bulgogi, bibimbap and many others.
The students participated in a cooking class conducted by Korean chefs and were introduced to the ingredients and spices that go into creating Korean food. The cooking class also demonstrated techniques unique to Korean cuisine. Students were able to make their own kimchi (spicy pickled cabbage) during the cooking class.
"We have a good number of students highly interested in Korean culture," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students. "We make sure to offer them cultural exchange opportunities on and off campus to satisfy their curiosity to learn more about the culture of their interest. Our students' knowledge and ability to interact with various cultures enables them to become effective individuals in a global society," she added.
The students' participation was organized by Office of Student Affairs' Student Multicultural Learning Program.
