Recipes from Home
In order to ease the transition from home life to college life, UAB Dining had developed a way to bring a little piece of home to campus. All freshman parents are invited to participate in the Recipes from Home recipe contest. Parents, send us your students favorite recipe from home. Recipes will be collected throughout the summer during orientation. The last day for parents to submit their recipe will be August 3rd at 5:00 PM. After the deadline, each recipe will be tested in the kitchen to see which top 15 would be prepared for the students to vote on during RA Training. Our Resident Dining Chef will follow each recipe word for word to keep the dish as authentic as possible while still being able to mass produce the recipe.
15 recipes will be sampled and tasted by the Resident Assistants during their training in August. RAs will submit their vote on a 1 to 5 scale; 1 being “Not My Favorite” and 5 being “Delicious”. There will be three categories: Best Entrée, Best Dessert, and Best Sandwich or Side. Three honorable mentions will also be selected for each of these categories.
Winners will be announced and on display at Move-In on August 11th. The three first place winners will receive an UAB Campus Restaurants Chef coat. Each winner and honorable mention will have their recipes featured in at The Commons on the Green during the months of September and October. Their picture and winning recipe as well as personalized recipe cards will be on display when their dish is featured at The Commons. A digital cookbook will be posted on the UAB Dining Website as well as distributed to all freshman parents to enjoy.
