Event Description:

Cultural Attachés of Grinnell College are partnering with Pagliai's Pizza for a "Tastes of the World" event. Through the Cultural Attaché Program, Grinnell College students have worked with Pagliai's to create three pizzas that represent a little piece of the culture they call home -- from India, Brazil and Thailand. By purchasing one or more of the special pizzas, consumers will have the opportunity to taste new flavors and learn a little bit more about the significance of those flavors.

The Office of International Student Affairs will host a virtual event with participating Cultural Attachés on Sunday, May 16 at 6 p.m. Students will present on their pizzas, inviting the community to learn more about the culture and history represented in each dish.

  • Divyansh Singh, a second-year student from Kolkata, India with a strong passion for fusion cuisines, will present a chicken tikka masala pizza.
  • Carolina Klauck Novaes, a second-year student from Porto Alegre, Brazil, brings a sweeter dish to the table: the Romeu e Julieta, known for the inclusion of guava, a tropical fruit.
  • Sun Yuvachitti, a newly arrived first-year student from Bangkok, Thailand, is excited to experiment with the flavors represented in massaman chicken curry.

Each option will be sold as a medium frozen pizza and will be available for pick-up from Pagliai’s in Grinnell from Monday, May 3 through Sunday, May 16. Each pizza will come with details on how to register for the special virtual event. You can also register here.
