Culture, Community, and Cuisine

What is Penn Cooks?

In recognition of the diverse student population we have on campus, Penn Dining provides opportunities to feature chefs and cuisines from a variety of locations, backgrounds, and cultures.  Working with the Chaplain's Office and Penn University Life, Penn Dining created a program called Penn Cooks – Culture, Community, and Cuisine. 

See what Penn Cooks brings to the Penn Community here.

During the Academic Year, each of our residential dining locations will feature a dish or dishes by including them as special menu options, at made-to-order expo stations, as part of Quaker Kitchen chef demos, or in other innovative incorporations.

Our chefs work with recipes chosen from iconic cookbooks, suggested by local and Penn-affiliated chefs, or submitted by students to develop special menu items that will be featured throughout our cafes.
