Thanksgiving Recipes

Each year Donor Relations and Stewardship works with students in the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences to create Thanksgiving appropriate recipes to share with alumni, donors and friends.

These recipes are developed by students in Family Consumer Sciences 385, using the Quantity Food Production and Equipment Lab. During this course students learn and practice principles of quantity food production including recipe development and evaluation. The course contributes to the supervised practice experience for students in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics. For the Thanksgiving project, students are asked to create a team recipe that reflected both the spirit of the season and Vandal pride. The recipes can be found here.

We hope you enjoy these recipes and make them part of your holiday table.

Creating Holiday Unity

Dietetics students combine cultures to create new dish for Thanksgiving table.

Vandal Unity: 2017

This year, the students in the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences 385 class were challenged to use ingredients that are not typically paired to create a final dish that unlocked a whole new world of flavor combinations for your Vandal family’s Thanksgiving table. They more than met the challenge! This year’s recipes are wonderfully creative, bold and, most importantly, delicious!

We applaud all of the students who participated in this year’s challenge and would like to extend a special congratulations to Katie Akin and Satoko Haji on their winning recipe, Vandal Sweet Potatoes.

We hope that you find something here that inspires you and becomes a family favorite. Happy Thanksgiving!
