It’s great that we can depend on so many teams across campus; from our award-winning chefs to our AV Technicians, car-park attendants and IT support who all play a part in bringing together great events at the University.
We’ve just heard that our chefs, from Great Food at Leeds, have been awarded the Gold Standard Catering Mark by the Soil Association for a menu that’s been put together for the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) conference.
The menu, which covers a Gala Dinner and a number of finger buffets, was rewarded for every percentage point of their ingredients spent on ethical and environmentally friendly food, locally sourced ingredients and steps to offer healthier menus.
On top of all that it’s a tasty looking menu too! Here’s a sneak peek of the Gala Dinner menu:
Approved Gala Menu for EAUC
Swaledale Goats Cheese Panacotta with Organic Beetroot Salad – (Cheese from Swaledale, Cream from Scarcroft, Leeds, Organically Grown Beetroot)
