2019 is the University of Maryland’s Year of Immigration, which aims to transform dialogue into impact on urgent issues related to immigration, global migration and refugees, and to foster open conversation and greater connection with the University of Maryland’s large and diverse international community. This initiative includes cultural events around campus to celebrate and embrace our school’s international diversity. Dining Services joined the call by doing what we do best, putting on an international food festival— Destination Maryland.
In preparation for Destination Maryland, we reached out to the families of undergraduate students, to graduate students, and to campus faculty and staff for recipes to share in the spirit of world cuisine. The response was amazing and we received over 80 recipes that came to us from all over the world! We researched regions of origin for the UMD international campus community and using that knowledge we selected submitted recipes as the foundation for our celebration.
Destination Maryland was a huge success, and now we’d like to share a bit of it with you! In this cookbook you will find highlighted recipes featured at the dinner, prepared by our chefs on the Maryland Day Cooking Stage—as well as every recipe submitted by the campus community!
We hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we have. Join us in celebrating the University of Maryland’s Year of Immigration. Click here to open the 2019 Recipes from Home – Year of Immigration Cookbook.
