An Election Dinner was held at the Marketplace and Great Hall on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6. A few of President Obama's and Governor Romney's favorites were served with an opportunity for students to vote for the menu items they liked best. Among Obama's favorite foods were chili, arugula salad with mushrooms and goat cheese and pumpkin chess pie with Romney's favorites to include meatloaf, spicy red pepper hummus and peanut butter cups. After the votes were tallied Romney's food favorites prevailed with the favorite menu item being peanut butter cups! Many thanks to all who participated!

This blog was written by Laura Neubauer ('13), and was based on an interview with Franca Alphin conducted  in the spring of 2012.

When you think of replenishment beverages after working out, what comes to mind? I tend to think of sports drinks such as Gatorade or Powerade, or those “mix it yourself” drinks such as Endurox. I was surprised to learn, though, that it is chocolate milk that provides your body exactly what it needs post-workout.

Many folks around the nation have embraced the “Eat Local” movement, in regard to meat, produce and dairy, but not much attention has been paid to fish. EAT LOCAL FISH DAY on Tuesday, 9/25 will introduce you to sustainable seafood.

Please join Duke Dining and Bon Appetit Management Company at the Marketplace on East Campus on Tuesday, 9/25 at lunchtime, for the Eat Local Fish Challenge. Helpful apps, recipes and extensive research will be available to all and sustainable fish populations will be highlighted.

Please join Duke Dining as we celebrate the Grand Opening of Au Bon Pain, located in the Bryan Center, on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.

The day will be filled with raffles, samplings and give-a-ways with the ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:45. Enter the raffle by 2:15 to have a chance at winning an Au Bon Pain gift basket. Gift baskets will be raffled at 2:30 and 3:00.

Au Bon Pain officially opened on Friday, August 17, 2012 and has been very well received by the university community. Offering made-to-order salads, wraps and sandwiches and fresh baked artisan breads it’s been tough to find even standing room at Duke Dining’s newest addition.

 

Duke Dining is committed to fulfilling many goals, one of which is providing access to nutritional data. To help achieve that goal Duke Dining has been selected as one of a few universities to pilot a nutrition program at Marketplace and the West Union. Please bear with us as with any new program there are a few bugs to be worked out and please let us know how the new nutrition program is working for you. 

If you have any questions or comments please contact Duke Dining at 919-660-3900 or dining@duke.edu.
