International students and Gunston staff gathered recently for a traditional "hot pot" dinner.
Hot pot, or hotpot (simplified Chinese: 火锅; pinyin: huǒguō), is a popular Chinese cooking method, prepared with a simmering pot of soup stock or broth on an induction burner. While the pot full of flavored broth is kept simmering, people can put raw ingredients into the pot to cook in a manner similar to fondue.Typical hot pot ingredients include leafy vegetables, mushrooms, vermicelli noodles, thinly sliced potatoes, dumplings, fried tofu, and seafood.
“The students really took the lead on cooking and organizing everything. We wanted to take a moment to gather together over a good meal and appreciate our wonderful international students by giving them a taste of home,” says David Miller, Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Global Programs at Gunston.
