In conjunction with the Kentucky Folklife Program and WKU's International Year of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology‘s graduate Foodways class will be presenting a demonstration of Bosnian Pita at the Confucius Institute Kitchen on Thursday, November 16th beginning at 4:30pm.
Join us as mother-daughter pair Fatima Delic and Nejra Delic prepare pita and discuss the importance food in Bosnian culture and tradition. Anyone interested in Bosnia or tradition is encouraged to attend.
The Confucius Institute Kitchen is located in WKU’s new model Confucius Institute building on Normal Street, not to be confused with the Confucius Institute’s space in Helm Library. The new Confucius Institute building is next to WKU’s Honors College and International Center. While the brand-new Confucius Institute building is not on the campus map yet, you can get directions by locating the Honors College and walking to the next building over (single-story building with a garden).
