The Cultural Diversities FoodFest

We are planning a FoodFest for one of the evenings in the weekend  — either Friday, Saturday or Sunday. We invite talented chefs to join us and prepare some of the traditional food of their country or region. This is not about cooking huge quantities, but just small samples. If we have enough participants in this, we will nibble on a lot of small chunks of food from all over the world and get the real taste of multiculturalism, wont'we?.

Please think ahead of the ingredients you might need. If you need just maize floor or feta cheese, these can be bought in Hungary, but remember the prices are higher there than in, say, Russia.

Eva promised to support this event be letting us use their facilities (I don't mean by 'facilities' the photocopier or the fax machine ! ;-)).
