Global Recipe Book

The Global Week collaboration aims to share recipes from around the world. The Catering Team welcome students and staff to share their favourite recipes to be included in our first 'Global Recipe Book', which will be released in PDF format. 
Recipe submissions will be accepted by Monday 7 November. Please send these to catering@plymouth.ac.uk and our team will be able to process them for the Global Recipe Book.
What we need:
  • Dish name
  • Ingredients list
  • Method
  • Photo (desirable)
  • Any other information
Our team of expert chefs are available to discuss menus and offer any money saving or cooking tips, ingredients, method advice etc. 
We will also be offering the opportunity for our cafes to cook these recipes as part of their daily specials between the 14–18 November (Global Week). Dependent on the number of recipe submissions, these meals will be chosen via a vote on social media.
