Fraternity Dining - Chef Matt for the men of Sigma Nu at the University of Oregon

Fraternity Dining - Chef Matt for the men of Sigma Nu at the University of Oregon

Okay so our chefs don't need recipes to provide the ridiculously good fraternity dining experience that we're known for.  But every now and then they'll look to inspiration and in this case Chef Matt Norris, Chef for the men of Sigma Nu at Oregon, did just that.  These Banh Mi sandwiches came right out of the College Chefs' cookbook.  


This is what fraternity dining looks like when you have College Chefs.

Fraternity & Sorority Food Highlights - September 2015

Fraternity & Sorority Food Highlights - September 2015

Check out the video slideshow below for a quick look at some of the food our chefs have done for our fraternity & sorority customers this past September 2015.  The food we are serving in our Greek houses is not what one would typically expect in a fraternity or sorority,  We strive to find the right balance between food that is familiar but done with a twist.

Start with 20lbs of Strawberries...  :::  Strawberry Mousse Recipe

Start with 20lbs of Strawberries... ::: Strawberry Mousse Recipe

It’s hot, really hot. In the midst of high summer temperatures it can be challenging to find a dessert that is both refreshing and satisfies the sweet tooth.

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.

Find your local Farmers Market (http://www.usdalocalfooddirectories.com/) stock up on fresh strawberries (our favorite fruit!), and enjoy this sweet refresher!

Be warned!  This recipe will serve a ton of people!

“College Chefs renewed my passion for cooking”- Chef Michael Rothenback

“College Chefs renewed my passion for cooking”- Chef Michael Rothenback

I can do better than this, says a then 15 year old Michael Rothenback who started his adventure with food as a 15 year old high school kid washing dishes for a local sandwich shop in New Jersey.


One day Michael had this brilliant idea of wanting to become one of the “guys” and actually make the food instead of scraping the leftovers off of people's plates. He eventually put it out there to the owner that he was interested in transitioning into one of the line cooks--but of course, being that Michael was  young and under-experienced the owner did not give much thought to it until fate changed his luck.


A Now, classically trained chef and graduate from The Culinary Institute of America (Hyde Park, NY) Chef Michael Rothenback recalls the day when his luck looked up when a line cook called-in sick. Chef Michael was given the opportunity by the owner to fill his shift and to put him to the test to see what he was made-out-of.


Needless to say Chef Michael Rothenback proved his worthiness and also had a self realization that he truly enjoyed working in the kitchen.


Once his luck changed that day he gained even more confidence and told himself that he could do better than this and took the leap to step his game up a notch by leaving the sandwich shop and joining a new Italian restaurant that opened right next door to where he first started his culinary path.


It’s been a long time since then, now with more than 30 years of culinary experience under his belt, Chef Michael Rothenback has had the pleasure of working at several different causal and fine dining establishments including operating and running his own restaurants in New Jersey and West Virginia.


Currently, Chef Michael Rothenback serves as the Head Chef for the brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at West Virginia University.


As always, hats off to the chef!

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!

Q & A With Chef Michael Summers, Chef of Sigma Nu at Louisiana State University

Q & A With Chef Michael Summers, Chef of Sigma Nu at Louisiana State University

Chef Michael Summers is the head chef for the Sigma Nu chapter at Louisiana State University and a native of Louisiana himself.


Coming from a state drenched in a sense of community, culture, and food, Chef Michael knows the true meaning of experiencing life through passion.  He eagerly shared his positive attitude, triumphant moments, and a glimpse of life during Hurricane Katrina; all of which made him an even stronger chef today.
