The Aladdin Campus Dining chef revived a canceled event through the power of menu and has plans for wide-ranging cultural experiences for the campus community as it comes back to life this spring.

 

Chef Asif SarkarLike countless other in-person events, the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh (UWO)’s annual Taste of Nations hasn’t been happening because of the pandemic. But Chef Asif Sarkar, RDM Steven Godard and the Aladdin Campus Dining team found a way to improvise that delivered the spirit of the event, and maybe even some inner peace, to boot.

Since the Taste of Nations event celebrates diversity and global cuisine, Sarkar decided to dig into his own roots and created the Namaste menu, which was a big hit and has morphed into a part of the residential dining cycle, expanding into different cultures, as well.
