Holiday Recipes

Each year, students in the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences' Coordinated Program in Dietetics create holiday-appropriate recipes to share with Vandal families near and far.

These talented and innovative students develop their recipes while learning and practicing principles of quantity food production. For the holiday recipe challenge, students work in pairs to create recipes that reflect the spirit of the season and Vandal pride. Their recipes, as well as those developed by students in recent years, are available here.

2021 Recipe Challenge Theme: Brave. Bold. Recipes

Vandals are known for being brave and bold in their pursuit of curiosity, innovation and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. This year, we challenged students to create recipes that embody what it means to be brave and bold. Whether it’s bold flavors and colors, or a brave presentation in their dish, we encouraged students to think of dishes that harness the Brave. Bold. Vandal spirit during the holidays.  

Students presented their recipes to a tasting panel of alumni, faculty and staff including Provost Torrey Lawrence. Congratulations to this year's winning recipe: Bold Vandal Soup Shooter Combo.

Please enjoy these recipes as part of your celebrations this holiday season.
