This campaign is run by Johanna Korhonen, the current Vice President (Arts, Law and Social Sciences) in collaboration with the University catering team.
The first ever recipe trial was run by ARU Students' Union and the catering service in Cambridge in February. Ten recipes suggested and voted for by students were served up in the canteen.
This was very successful as the Cambridge catering team have agreed to keep nine out of ten trialled recipes as part of their six-weekly menu, including chocolate brownie, tacos and macaroni cheese. They also included seven additional recipes that came from the recipe suggestion in the six-weekly menu.
Because the trial was so successful in Cambridge the Chelmsford catering team have agreed to run it in their canteen!
Recipe suggestion period will begin on Monday 9th April and it will finish on 13th April. You can have your say about what you would like to see served in your canteen by filling in the recipe suggestion cards, which are located in MAB canteen next to Costa!
Once the suggestions are in, we will run a poll to determine which five recipes will be trialled from the most popular suggestions. You can vote online from 18th till 22nd Apri - keep an eye out for a link we will share on Facebook!
The most exciting part is when the recipes you suggested will appear in the canteen as part of the regular menu! You can try them out and give us feedback and they might become a permanent part of the menu. The Recipe Trial will run from 30th April till 4th May.
