This happens in Australia too. And I bet it happens in every multi-cultural nation.

In grades 3 and 4 my teacher* would organise "international days" on which we would learn about a particular country and a parent of a student in the class, who had ancestry of the country in question, would come and cook a dish from that country.

Once upon a time, people would complain about Italian immigration, now spaghetti bolognaise is one of Australia's most popular meals.

Thank God for immigration, because as much as I like a good steak, I don't want it every night. And I don't like lamb.

*The teacher moved up a grade with us.
