Marquette will celebrate International Education Week, Nov. 18-22, as part of a joint effort of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
Events start Monday with a kick-off from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the AMU. Innovation Kitchen will host two experiential cooking classes:
- Hummus 101 | Monday, Nov. 18, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Join two students who will share recipes and stories from home. Samples will be provided. Space is limited to 30 participants; register online.
- Hagamos Tamales – Culture Through Cuisine | Thursday, Nov. 21, at 5:30 pm
Melanie Vianes, director of operations for Dining Services, and her abuela (grandma), Andrea, will share their coveted family tamale recipe while demonstrating the different stages of this process: ingredient purchasing, the three stages of meat preparation, masa preparation, husk preparation, filling and making the tamales and steaming for the final tamale. Andrea will also tell stories what it was like being Mexican American in the 1930s, moving to Milwaukee and owning her restaurant, Casa Mañana. Registration is required.
More information and a list of all events is online.
