(9.30) This one looks real good. It’s time for the annual International Community Festival at St. Michael the Archangel Church in South Providence. Gail Ciampa at the ProJo has the details and a few recipes, but I think it makes sense to go find out how the recipe is supposed to turn out when in capable and experienced hands.
As the church prepared to celebrate its 43rd annual International Community Festival, members of the parish shared some of their ethnic dishes representing the cultures of Haiti, Cape Verde, the Dominican Republic, Burundi and Rwanda, and the Hmong of Laos. They will also have food that is Portuguese Creole, Swahili and Arabic, as well as burgers, fries and candied apples.
. . . The event is Sunday, Sept. 30, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is preceded by a 10 a.m. Mass and a procession led by the R.I. Burundi drummers Inziragukanya. The festival is a fundraiser for the church. Parishioners make all the food that’s for sale.
I have a picture of Sunday’s destination but they got a preview of the food! Check out the photos by Steve Szydlowski. Yum.
