The Student International Dinner was the first Event to be held at DkIT. The International Dinner happened on 11th of October were we invited our Erasmus and International students to prepare and present famous or favourite foods from their home countries. The event was held in the college bar with traditional Irish music from DkIT students and tables of food from Spain, Germany, China, France, Finland, Estonia, Denmark, Bulgaria and Irish stew representing the Irish. The night was a fantastic success for not only us and for everyone who participated by making food, but also for the Irish who got to experience this on our doorstep. The atmosphere on the night was electric with pride in the food the students made and curiosity and awe from those of us that got to experience the food and hear the back stories of the traditions behind what they had made.
This event will become a core event on our calendar every semester and we hope to extend the concept and possibly tie in with the Taste of Louth initiative, a fantastic way to showcase the best of local.
