A Taste of the World

Rotary International Dinner brings together people of various nationalities to spotlight their ancestry, culture, and cuisine

CORBIN — A Disney song once said, “It’s a small world, after all.”

And Saturday night the world came to the Corbin Civic Center for the 6th Annual International Dinner, co-sponsored by the Corbin and London Rotary Clubs. The event brings together people of various nationalities who live in the Tri-County region, to spotlight their ancestry, their culture, and especially their cuisine.

Numerous nations featured samples of their foods at the dinner, which was well-attended. Proceeds from the International Dinner go towards the eradication of polio in the world, a cause dear to the hearts of Rotarians locally and worldwide.

In addition to the food and entertainment enjoyed by many, a video presentation was made, which showed stories of Rotarians in the field, working to eradicate polio.

Ann Corso and her daughter Katie served up a helping of “Maccu di San Giuseppe,” a soup from the Italian region of Sicily. Corso said at the International Dinner the soup is traditionally served during the Feast of Saint Joseph, which falls on this Wednesday, March 19.
