[eDebate] Harvard Tournament Menu

I am very excited about this year's menu at Harvard.  Since we can't all travel to the topic countries, I am hoping to bring a little bit of the people and the cultures of those countries to you.  Through my travels around the world, I feel that you can learn a lot about people and make a connection to their culture, by experiencing their food.  I am also somewhat apprehensive about this year's fare, given that I am breaking the cardinal rule of catering to not serve food to a crowd that you have never made before.  Many of the dishes will be as new to me as they are to you.  Most of you will already be familiar with at least some of them.  I am enjoying the process of learning about the cuisine of the region, and hope that you will enjoy the final product as well.
