NSIRC Students had some well-deserved time out from their studies last week at the Balkan Food Event, Cambridge.
The event was brought to light by fellow student Mario Kostan, who circulated information to students and encouraged them to get involved.
The event – organised and hosted by the Cambridge University Yugosphere Society (CUYUS) – was a great success among Cambridgeshire’s’ students and had over one hundred and twenty attendees. Students were exposed to a variety of new dishes, including ‘fritele’ (fried apple pastries) and ‘gibanica’ (cheese pie).
CUYUS, a society serving as a platform for gathering of students residing in the Cambridge area, aims to further integrate students originating from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. However, CUYUS also offers a unique opportunity for all students to enjoy the cultures and traditions of the before mentioned ex-YU countries.
With such a popular success rate, students have shown a strong interest in attending similar gatherings in the future, with more plans to participate in social events being envisaged.
