Fasika Restaurant Trip

After lectures on food language in film and branding and design in food packaging, we headed out to Fasika Ethiopian restaurant in Lenexa. Many were tasting the Ethiopian bread, injera (made from fermented teff flour), for the first time. We had a sampler platter of various vegetables - collards, green beans, lentils, cabbage, split peas - and meats - chicken, beef tibs and ground beef.

On a beautiful Monday evening the Advantage Food and Culture students met for our first class, learning a little about food as a social and cultural marker. We experienced some Korean food while we learned about Korean social practices around eating. What a great group - people tried a wide sample of Korean items:
Bibimbop, Korean veggie pancake, a spicy chicken dish, bulgogi, tteokboki, kimchi, and various other side dishes.
