Adventure to Latin America and Africa

Today's culinary adventure began with a presentation from Alex on Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. A demonstration on cutting fruits introduced campers to new fruits and let them try their hand at cutting a mango. Caroline then gave a presentation on Africa. After learning about the dark continent campers set off to make Latin American and African dishes that included: enchiladas, plantain chips, African Sukuma Wiki(a chicken stew), ginger beer, and ice cream made from Mexican hot cocoa. The plantain chips were a hit as the campers sat down to sample all of the diverse dishes. After some clean up DDR and Wii ensued. The ladies from Leeds Met then demonstrated how to make strawberry mice for a snack. Can't wait to visit The Mediterranean and Europe tomorrow!
