Potluck Patrio > Liberal Arts Program + URGD + CPH Summer Program

Potluck Thank uLast year, the CIEE Study Center Buenos Aires hosted a traditional American feast – Thanksgiving dinner – in order to not only celebrate this holiday, but also to bring together American and Argentine cuisine potluck style. This year, on May 23, we held a similar potluck feast, this time celebrating the important Argentine holiday, the Semana de Mayo (May 18 – 25), which celebrates the moment when Argentina declared itself independent from Spain in 1810. This important holiday, like our Thanksgiving, is also an important culinary occasion, featuring typical Argentine foods, like empanadas, locro (a hearty thick stew) and pastelitos (a sweet pastry). This event, like Thanksgiving, intended to bring together two distinct cultures by sharing conversation, celebration, and, of course, delicious foods. The best way to get to know a new place is through its food!
