This year was another gathering for the Taste of Diversity. Unfortunately the weather had greatly affected the overall size and quality of the event. Once the rain and wind subsided more people had come out. I was unable to see any performances but I was told while I was there I should see dancing but it never materialized. The event was selling a cookbook with recipes from local community members who are from all over world. One of my clients that I helped resettled with named in the book, so several recipes were from local refugee families. Since there were no festivities I decided to try eating at some of the food vendors. Below are the pictures of the different dishes I had.
The Teabag salad was graciously bought for me by Dr. Robert Stall active community member and member of Building Bridges. Although promised it was not spicy I did get a kick of some hot flavors. It was a nice Burmese dish with an unexpected crunch from the nuts.
Although I am not a fan of ginger I reached for the ginger salad. It was nice, very light flavor, a nice cool dish on a muggy summer day.
I love rice pudding and I was lucky to get one of the last ones. It was more Greek style rice pudding but I like both Greek and Indian. It was very tasty but I had to pick out the raisans.
And then I finished everything I ate off with a refreshing Native American drink of sugar water with strawberries.
