HOUGHTON -- Since this weekend marks Iran's New Year celebration, Hasti Asayesh Ardakani, an Iranian undergraduate in mechanical engineering, will help Michigan Tech celebrate by cooking an authentic Iranian lunch for Khana Khazana (food treasure). The menu includes Tah chin, a Persian layered saffron rice and chicken entree; barley soup; and Persian yogurt, a yogurt and cucumber side dish.
The food will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, March 18, in the Memorial Union Food Court. A full meal costs $6 and includes coffee, hot tea or a fountain soda. Menu items also are available à la carte for $2 each.
