One of campus dining’s missions is to serve and develop more plant forward menus.  One of my favorite parts about being a chef is the ability to research, experiment and develop new recipes and techniques to make plant forward more pronounced in our operations.  Once my team and I have experimented with a recipe and built the proper flavor profile, we love to integrate them into our menu cycle.  This week and next you will see photos and recipes that demonstrate one of our more popular and successful testaments when we implemented the Charred Vegetable Charcuterie station last year. You can easily create the same recipes off campus.
