Decide on a food that has a cultural connection for you and/or your family and prepare and/or bring enough to offer each member of the class a small portion to taste.
Using the Library databases and/or other academic research tools and materials, research the historical and cultural roots of your food.
You are required to do research on the history of the food and its connection to your cultural heritage and possibly to other cultures; and to provide a list of at least three appropriate references.
You may include a discussion of any special methods of preparation and consumption that are specifically related to your culture.
You may also include a discussion of how this food was eaten in your family and/or any other personal/family connections to the food.
Prepare a short oral presentation (not less than ive minutes and not more than sevent minutes minutes) about the food you brought to class. Your presentation should help members of the class to better understand your own cultural heritage.
