What's Cooking? Veggie recipe competition closes on 16 December

11 Dec 2012

How would you like to share your favourite vegetarian recipe, have the chance to see your recipe grace the counters in food outlets across the University, and help the environment all at the same time? Plus win one of five fabulous prizes?

If you have a delicious vegetarian recipe that could turn any meat-eater into a once a week veggie, then please enter the Sustainable Consumption Institute’s (SCI) What’s Cooking? recipe competition before 16 December:

Shortlisted recipes will be published in a recipe booklet and will be available online. Winners will have the chance to prepare their dish with The University of Manchester’s Executive Head Chef, and see their recipes become part of a new vegetarian menu being offered in University food outlets including student halls.

The aim of the Sustainable Consumption Institute is to support the Meat Free Monday campaign across campus starting with a recipe competition in November and December. The SCI wants to encourage staff and students to consider eating vegetarian meals at least once a week and to play their part in reducing carbon emissions associated with meat production.

Winners will be announced at the end of January 2013 followed by a pledge drive encouraging students and staff to join the Meat Free Monday campaign.

If you would like to help promote the Meat Free Monday campaign in your School or Department in the New Year, please send an email with 'SCI Meat Free Monday Campaign' in the subject line to:

The competition is open to anyone working or studying at The University of Manchester.
