FALL 2015

Elise Ott has always had a huge fascination with both travel and food. When presented with the freedom to create her own semester-long project for Mosaic, she realized it was the perfect opportunity to explore her love for both. Elise posted bimonthly food blogs that explored the culture of countries that Honors students have visited while studying abroad or during personal travels. She also drew from the diverse culture of UA’s Honors program and learned from international students about their favorite delicacies from home. Each blog includes pictures, anecdotes, and a recipe of the student’s favorite dish from the country they visited is also included so that readers can attempt to make their own at home.
