Turkish Tasting Station

Lion’s Den
Admission: free

What better way to celebrate the Turkish culture than a tasting station. The Campus Activities Board is excited to bring the campus community the opportunity to taste three of the most well-known Turkish exports when it comes to the taste buds.

Legend has it that 230 years ago there was a Turkish Sultan who believed the path to a woman’s heart was through her stomach. In order to please his numerous mistresses he ordered his chefs to prepare a novel dessert. Thus, the Turkish Delight was born. Swing by and grab a taste of one of the most coveted royal delicacies in the world.
