Today’s Fall Festival on Old Campus featured cuisines from eight countries, but two of them were somewhat suspect. In addition to Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Japan and the United States, the country of “Asia” was included. Even more puzzlingly, a tent labeled Columbia — as in the university — also infiltrated the international food festival, offering up carne asada, black bean flautas, sonora salad and platano maduro. To the Yale College Council’s credit, they at least got the flag right.
