The cafe provides hot meals for students on Northwestern’s campus, but many students complain about a lack of variety. In order to help students expand their palate and escape the drudgery of pizza or burgers for every meal, the Beacon is proud to bring you a new series: Cafe Creations.
We will be bringing you the methods that students, faculty and staff have used to make mealtime at the cafe a more varied experience. For our first installment in this series, Chef BJ has offered some of his favorite concoctions.
1. During the Mongolian Grill on Friday, Chef BJ likes to take beef, celery, onions and broccoli, mix them together and grill them in the peanut sauce. Give it a try this Friday during lunch!
2. “Big Blooper”: On hot cookie Wednesdays, Chef BJ’s favorite treat is putting soft serve ice cream between two cookies to form a tasty sandwich. Senior Laura Stralow enjoys her ice cream between peanut butter cookies while senior Amber Maloney prefers chocolate chip cookies.
3. The “Elvis Style” sandwich: This sweet sandwich is a variation of the unconventional favorite of the late King of Rock and Roll. Consisting of peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallow crème (with raspberries, when available). Junior Tiemen Godwaldt shows his enthusiasm for this treat.
