Armchair Traveler - Food Around the World
Join us in the Great room at 4pm for a wonderful armchair traveler presentation, Food around the World, focusing on France. Ansley Roberts will be talking about her recent travels abroad where she spent six months in France. If there is one theme prevalent throughout that entire country it would be the great food. She spent a semester abroad in Paris, France studying European history and culture at Institut Catholique de Paris. During her semester in Paris she was able to taste all France had to offer from Normandy to Nice. In her Armchair Traveler presentation, Ansley will discuss all the delectable delights France has to offer. After the presentation stick around to enjoy some cheeses, breads, and desserts in French style.
