I found this mini celebration quite fun and interesting, and I especially took note of the food part because of the book we are reading, Like Water for Chocolate. You can see the article here, and also the full menu of the evening.

The White House Celebrates Latin America
On Tuesday, many Latin American artists and chefs converged upon the White House to help celebrate Latin American culture. Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan, and others came to help celebrate. With such a celebration of Latin America, it was impossible not to also celebrate the food. A guest chef came to the White House to cook up an amazing array of foods from all over Latin America including Argentinian empanadas, Brazilian Arrumadinho, Honduran Enchiliadas, and many others.
