Holiday Recipes

Each year, students in the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences' Coordinated Program in Dietetics create holiday-appropriate recipes to share with Vandal families near and far.

These talented and innovative students develop their recipes while learning and practicing principles of quantity food production. For the holiday recipe challenge, students work in pairs to create recipes that reflect the spirit of the season and Vandal pride. Their recipes, as well as those developed by students in recent years, are available here.

Vandal Holiday Recipe Challenge 2019: Coming Home to Idaho
Eight pairs of students were challenged to create a dish that reflects the joy and comfort of coming home for the holidays, using an Idaho-produced ingredient: beef. Vandal Brand Meats generously supplied various cuts to let the students' creativity shine.

Students presented their recipes to a tasting panel of alumni, faculty, staff and community members. Congratulations to this year's winning recipe, the Vandal Beef Wreath, and to all of the students who participated in the challenge.

Please enjoy these recipes as part of your gatherings this holiday season.
