From Your Table to Ours

There’s nothing quite like the taste of home. Whether it’s your Nana’s homemade apple pie or your family’s curry recipe, no holiday is complete without your favourite family recipe. So many holiday dishes are more than just food – they are what great memories are made of.

Do you have a special family recipe that you would like to share with U of T?

Send it to us by January 19, and it could be served in the Food Services dining halls here on campus! Some of the entries will be featured during our Sunday Family Dinner Specials in the New Year.

Plus if your recipe is selected, you and a friend will get to enjoy the Sunday Family Dinner Special for free.

And that’s not all!

Your family recipe might even make its way into the end-of-the-term Family Recipe Cookbook. This will be a student-generated collection of delicious, special holiday recipes, straight from your family table to ours.

How to submit your recipe

Fill out the recipe submission form: by Friday, January 19, 2024.

Please include:

  • Recipe name (e.g. Harper Family Chicken Pie, Mum’s Famous Lasagna)
  • The full list of ingredients
  • Step-by-step cooking instructions
  • A description of why this recipe is so special and your memories of it
  • Any photos associated with your recipe or memories

Our chefs will review all submitted recipes and select the ones that they think will work best in our dining hall.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you. We can’t wait to recreate your special family dishes here and help you feel closer to home!
