There will be free food samples, ice cream, and students earn 500 FLASHPerks. The first 100 people to arrive at the event will get a free T-Shirt.

“The cook-off started as a way for our international students to showcase and share their cultures with American students,” says Jessica Cohen, marketing coordinator, Office of Global Education. “With each cook-off event we’ve had, we have seen more domestic students signing up to compete. If you think about it, everyone has a heritage or experience to share – a recipe passed down through the family or something you ate while studying abroad that reminds you of your travels. Sharing those cultures is what the cook-off is all about.”
