FWCD’s Flavors of the World event is a delicious way for fourth-graders to learn about different countries and cultures. View the slideshow. The program, sponsored by Lower School Spanish Teachers Gaby Booth and Natasha Hatcher and Lower School French Teacher Nevine Watkins, brings out the very best in FWCD families as students showcase a dish from their family’s country of origin or another country to which they are connected. 

Seventy-nine students took the opportunity to taste these dishes from around the world. After the tastings, they spent time filling out a form where they could check off what they tried and then provides their thoughts about the food they sampled.

This year’s dishes included Blintzes (Russia); Brezel German Pretzels and Potato Latkes (Germany); Swedish Meatballs, Swedish Pancakes and Swedish Butter Cookies (Sweden); Gorditas De Puerco (Mexico), Italian Breadsticks, Italian Anise Cookies, Focaccia and Tiramisu (Italy); Gumb and Kouign-Amann Pastry (France); Scotch Cookies (Scotland), Irish Soda Bread (Ireland), Baklava (Greece) Egg Rolls (Vietnam), Cuban Sandwiches, Croquetas de Jamon (Cuba), Chapati (Rwanda), Mini Victoria Sponge Cakes and Jewish Challah Bread (Israel); and Shrimp Crackers (Malaysia).
