REDDING, Calif. - International students from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry have come to Redding from more than 50 countries. Each year the students share their cultures with their church community at the Redding Civic Auditorium.
This is the 10th annual Festival of Cultures event. It is never advertised in advance because the students are serving dishes from their countries that are not made in commercial kitchens, but in their homes. Only church members are notified about the event each year, but others in the community are allowed to attend.
The international cuisine is always a highlight, but there are also beautiful displays and handouts to help people understand the many cultures represented at Bethel.
Children have their faces painted and their event passports "stamped" with flag stickers from each country represented. A portion of the proceeds will go to Operation Light a Candle, which helps refugees in Iraq.
One of the most popular food items this year is the Brazilian Stroganoff. It is made with chicken fillets that have been marinated for an hour in garlic, onion, nutmeg, oregano and dry white wine.
After than you heat cooking oil and saute some more onions, white mushrooms, ketchup, mustard and sour cream.
Sometimes in Brazil cognac is substituted for the white wine and table cream is used instead of sour cream.
Check our photo gallery for pictures taken at the event between 2015 and 2018. The photo of the Brazilian students at the top of the article is from the 2019 event. See the list below of all the represented countries and cultures.
