Pretzel Crusted Chicken Fingers:

The pretzel crust used for the breading offers additional flavor and a salty crunch to these chicken fingers that are sure to please in both sororities and fraternities. Serve these with a variety of dipping sauces such as chipotle ranch, horseradish honey mustard, or even jalapeno BBQ for an extra bite!

Spiced Pumpkin Soup

Spiced Pumpkin Soup

It’s back-to-school season and with it kicks off all things Fall...cooler weather, changing leaves, football games, and everything PUMPKIN! You’ve heard of pumpkin spice lattes, enjoyed pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, and likely carve one every Halloween, however we take this Fall staple and create a rich, satisfying soup that’s sure to warm the soul.


Some of our Chefs use fresh pumpkins to create this decadently creamy soup for sororities and fraternities every fall and it quickly becomes a menu favorite! If you don’t have fresh pumpkins on hand, canned pumpkin will work as a substitute. Or try butternut squash for a different flavor palate altogether!

This Strawberry Mousse is a bright and simple dessert that is sure to impress! The fresh strawberries offer a natural and full fruity flavor, while the cream cheese provides an extra punch by being both tangy and smooth.

With increased interest for fresher foods, sorority & fraternity members nationwide are expecting reasonably healthy treats such as this.

Chef Michael Summers, Upcoming Guest Chef at The Revolving Door Restaurant

Chef Michael Summers, Upcoming Guest Chef at The Revolving Door Restaurant

It's Chef Michael Summers turn to run the show as Chef at The Revolving Door Restaurant in Newport, Rhode Island and yes...I said turn. 

For those of you like myself who have never heard of this interestingly refreshing concept, owners Chef Albert and his wife Sarah opened The Revolving Door Restaurant with the idea of  inviting new chefs and rotating them out every two weeks to a month to cook for the restaurants guests'--in other words people are most likely to never eat the same dish twice.

This concept allows the restaurant to rotate menus and to consistently offer new sorts of culinary cuisines and ideas translated through the hands and experiences of each unique chef. 

We are happy and proud that College Chefs very own Chef Michael Summers has the chance to be apart of this new and enticing theme, in addition to establishing his brand and gaining exposure.

Check out Chef Michael Summers in the section of "upcoming guest chefs" on the Revolving Door's website...here's a shortcut:Upcoming Guest Chef, Chef Michael Summers

As always, hats off to the chef!
