We are a student society established over 10 years orignally based in Manchester South Church. Since then it's grown in to a joint effort between Man South, Man North, Stockport +. Manchester University is our Uni base though the society aim to cater for the wider student body. We are going as far a field as Gambia, YES Gambia, via the Gambia Educational Appeal - we support students and schools as far as West Africa, with textbooks, computers, stationary etc. Many students from the freshers fair outreach @ Manchester Uni have donated their oldtext books. pencils and computers to aid the appeal.
You'll be able to see and hear the teacher's appeal straight after the Cook-Off Visual below. Appeal cont'd further down this page.
BATTLE II: CARIBBEAN VS NIGERIAN COOK OFF
The plan, originating from the Seventh-day Adventist Student Society atManchester University, was to find a positive way of uniting the culturally divided students. They came up with the idea of having a cook off so both countries could show off their culinary skills, and mix and fellowship together.
The cook off, on Sunday, 17th March, was held at a student house and attracted both Adventist students and their friends to test the best from the Caribbean and Nigeria. Catering for all palates the Caribbean menu highlighted their traditions of curry goat, fried chicken, rice and peas, plantain and dumpling, along with mock duck, and a veganstew special. The Nigerian's countered with jollof rice, chicken, puff puff, pounded yam, egusi soup and moi moi.
There was a lot of country banter and debates on culture. The food variety was ample and after the food was eaten, everyone seemed to have bonded together. The final vote tipped Nigeria into winning position by just one vote. However, that was of little importance as, most importantly, food and friendship had drawn divided communities together.
