Can You Cook? Enter Our Healthy Recipe Contest

How would you like to win a $100 gift card and have your healthy recipe added to a rotating weekly menu in the Grove? Enter the Phi Theta Kappa Recipe Contest and you could be the winner!

The contest guidelines are simple: Create and cook a healthy and tasty recipe in one of three categories - breakfast entree, lunch entree or dessert & snack. To enter, just bring your delicious dish to the qualifying round.
  • Friday, Nov. 8, 2 to 5 pm in the Grove
  • Saturday, Nov. 9, 10 am to 2 pm in the Grove
The qualifying round will be judged by PTK members and a nutrition professor. Three winners in each category will be notified the week of Nov. 11 and move on to the final tasting. Each recipe must be accompanied by a written explanation of what makes it healthy.

In the final round your recipe will be prepared by the cafeteria staff in the Grove. Free samples will be available for the entire campus to vote on. Each category will have its own day of tasting.

  • Monday, Nov. 18 - breakfast entree
  • Tuesday, Nov. 19 - lunch entree
  • Wednesday, Nov. 20 - dessert & snack
As you prepare your recipe, there are several key points to keep in mind.
  • Appeal
  • Taste
  • Ease of preparation for cooking in mass quantities
  • Preparation time
  • Is your meal a sit-down or on-the-go meal
  • Dishes should be fully prepared at home. You will not have access to the cafeteria.
It's time to get cooking!
