East Halls gets a taste from south of the border

February 25, 2009

Returning from her trip to Mexico, Elissa Eckenrode wanted to bring some of her favorite Mexican flavors back to University Park. What came out of that trip was Sol de Cobre, a station in Findlay Dining Commons that offers fresh and tasty meals from south of the border.

Sol de Cobre, which means “copper sun” in Spanish, features many of the dishes that Eckenrode, a food preparer at Findlay, learned at the Mexican Culinary Workshop in Monterrey, Mexico.

Items include fresh salsas, sauces, tortillas, tacos and more. The Findlay crew geared the concept to a more authentic Mexican experience. It’s a part of Findlay’s all-you-care-to-eat dining commons and students can enjoy the full flavors of our neighbors to the south every weekday for lunch and dinner.
