Dine on traditional foods of the Jewish culture at Casper College Humanities Festival

From Casper College:

Traditional foods of the Jewish culture will be served at the next Casper College Ethnic Dinner on Thursday, Feb. 24, in conjunction with the 26th Annual Casper College Humanities Festival February 23-25.

Dishes to be served at the dinner include three entrees: Ashkenazi beef brisket, citrus-baked fish with rhubarb, and potato pierogies with caramelized onions, which is vegetarian. The side dishes include noodle kugel, carrot and sweet potato tzimmes, matzo ball soup, and Sephardic salad with nuts and dried fruits. For dessert, mini rugalah is tentatively planned.

Advance tickets for the Traditional Jewish Dishes ethnic dinner will be sold through Friday, Feb. 18 at a cost of $8.50 each. Tickets will also be available at the door for $11 for adults, $7 for ages 6 through 12, and free for children 5 and under. Tax will be added to all ticket purchases. Because dinners often sell out, advanced ticket purchases are highly recommended.

Tickets may be purchased at the Accounting and Financial Management Office, located in the Liesinger Administration Building, Room 103; the Roberts Commons Cafeteria; and the coffee bars in the Liesinger Administration Building and the Wold Physical Science Center. Cash is accepted at all locations and credit cards are accepted at the cafeteria and coffee bars.

The final dinner in this year's series will be Hungarian with a special presentation by the Casper College forensics team on April 14.

The ethnic dinner series is sponsored by the Casper College Diversity Committee, and is presented by Sodexo Campus Dining under Justin Dreslinski with the menu composed by Chef Josh Kronberg.
