A Taste of Europe
The Center for European Studies is celebrating its fifth anniversary, and to commemorate this milestone we have produced a cookbook of European recipes with accompanying information about the language and culture of all of the countries represented to help promote international awareness:
The traditional recipes of a country can provide a lot of information about its culture, traditions, language, and geography. What are typical dishes of each country? What traditions are associated with each dish? How do you say "onion" in Slovak, Hungarian, or Croatian? A Taste of Europe helps to answer some of the questions and in doing so opens a door to the tastes, languages, and cultures of Europe.
A Taste of Europe contains 56 recipes from 32 countries gathered from people connected in some way to UF faculty, retired faculty, visiting scholars, undergraduate and graduate students, staff, administration, and alumni. In all, the contributors to this endeavor represent 18 departments or fields from across the University of Florida. Contributors were asked to provide a traditional recipe or favorite recipe from any European country along with some background information about its cultural, social or personal significance.
Recipes are organized into sections according to the season during which each dish is normally prepared, and within each section recipes are arranged by course. Each recipe lists the title and ingredients both in English and the dominant language spoken in the country of origin. Cultural information about the relevant country or dish is included with most recipes.
