Student Family Recipe Contest!
Do you miss the comforts of home cooking? Is there a family favourite you wish you could have at Pritchard?
We want you to share your favourite, home-cooked comfort meal with us! Maybe it’s your mom’s Sunday night casserole, or your auntie’s amazing curry. If it’s a family favourite that warms your heart and your tummy, we want to hear about it!
Chosen recipes will be featured at Pritchard Dining Hall as dinner special!
About the Student Recipe Contest
We want you to be able to share your tastes, culture and family history with the staff and diners at Pritchard Dining Hall, by submitting a recipe that evokes that warm and wonderful feeling of comfort and home!
Simply send us your recipe, and the culinary team will assess submissions based on a few pieces of criteria. Don’t forget to include a bit about why you miss this meal, and why you think diners at Pritchard would love it.
We’re looking for hot dishes that can be served as a meal at dinner. You might just see your favourite family dish served as a special at Pritchard!
What We're Looking For
The UBCO Food Services culinary team will be assessing recipes based on a few pieces of criteria. We’re looking for recipes that:
1. come from your own family’s kitchen or well-loved cookbook
2. tie back to a family tradition or to your culture, and showcase diversity
3. can be served as a feature at a hot station during dinner
4. check that “comfort food” box!
Other factors to keep in mind:
Chefs will need to be able to procure the ingredients locally, in a timely manner, and from a supplier that can provide adequate volume!
Pritchard feeds roughly 1,500 students, so featured recipes will need to be ones that can be made in large quantity.
Can this meal be replicated to take into account dietary restrictions? Is there an opportunity to create a plant-based or dairy-free version of this meal?
Quality & clarity of instructions
We want to get your recipe right! Ease of instructions, and your willingness to work with the culinary team to bring your feature to Pritchard will be important!
