Guernsey hosts third annual International Food Fest

NORWICH – The Guernsey Memorial Library, in collaboration with the BOCES English as a Second Language adult education class, hosted the Third Annual International Food Fest Saturday, using foreign foods to entice people to learn more about different cultures and international members of the community.



In planning for Food Fest, each adult student in Bharti Shahi’s BOCES ESL class prepared a dish commonly served in their native country. Foods representing countries including Mexico, Japan, Sudan, China, Turkey, Ecuador and Puerto Rico were prepared, along with recipes and cooking instructions that students wrote.

The purpose, according to Shahi, is to improve students’ communication and English language skills while also breaking down barriers between local and international members of the community.
