Austin Folge, another of my wonderful CU Denver Honors Maymester students, is interested in comparisons. He’s been exploring and dissecting food culture in Ireland and Northern Ireland. In our spring 2014 Honors Seminar, he baked some homemade Irish soda bread and shepherd’s pie for the class as part of his final project presentation on Irish food culture. It was delicious! Take a look at his post, Day 7: Arrival in Belfast, A bit of a stroll, personal interest research, to read his very interesting reflections about finance and nutrition (the “grease factor”) comparisons between the US and Northern Ireland. Austin is taking this all in and methodically sifting through it all. It’s been great to watch him enjoying a new food culture! Take a look at Austin’s blog, and visit the other student blogs.
