Harrington held a welcome event, Food for Thought, on Wednesday evening, September 22nd. Over 60 students, faculty and staff stopped by the event, hosted by instructors Helen Oh and Andrew Conklin, along with a guest, restaurateur Meg Trboyevic, former owner of Les Nomades restaurant in Chicago, who spoke briefly about her experiences and showed a mural she designed for her restaurant’s dining room.

The participants sampled tasty homemade dishes and cookies, made from quick and easy recipes, and a few made their own maki rolls. The event’s goal was to raise awareness of inexpensive, healthy eating options for busy students on a budget, who were provided with recommended recipes and information about specialty food stores in the city.

Here are a few dessert recipes and photos from the event:
