Meanwhile, The Dominica Student Association of Trinidad & Tobago (DOMSATT), which represents and supports Dominican students at the UWI St. Augustine Campus, won the 2016/2017 ‘Taste UWI’ competition, which took place during orientation week at the campus.
DOMSATT stated “We have so far maintained our place in the top three positions for either our food displays or booth presentation or both, and we have once again kept this tradition by winning 1st place in the 2016/2017 ‘Taste UWI’ competition”.
The criteria for the competition this year was to choose an ingredient, and use it as the main item to create a local dish. That ingredient had to be incorporated in the theme for this year – ’50 Shades of Spices’. DOMSATT used plantain as the main ingredient for their winning dish.
The Association also showcased a number of products manufactured in Dominica; showcased Dominica’s culture; and represented their country in several activities geared toward Caribbean integration at the University of the West Indies.
DOMSATT’s Executive Committee is comprised of Lisana Dyer- President; Arnelle Isaac- Vice President; Joel Peter- Treasurer; Colleen Gordon- Secretary; and Yasmin John - PRO. The Association extended its gratitude to all those who assisted in its success in the 2016/2017 scholastic year.
