Did you know that there are more than 80 languages spoken in West Hartford?  The non-profit organization Hello! West Hartford builds bridges between community members through events and videos that promote the many cultures and languages spoken in town.

Together, the two organizations will host their second annual collaborative cultural dinner, Taste of Culture, on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 6 p.m. 

This year’s multi-sensory exploration of West Hartford culture includes cuisine, dance, and music from Peru, India, and Nepal.  

The first course will feature appetizers by Cora Cora. The restaurant serves Peruvian favorites and introduces the American palette to unique and delicious flavor combinations. During this course, the Kuskalla Peru Dancers will entertain diners.

Course two will feature Indian cuisine from East West Restaurant on Park Road in West Hartford, as well as traditional Indian music and dancing.  

Bombay Olive, known for its Nepalese and Persian delicacies, will present the final course, dessert, accompanied by traditional Nepalese dancing.
