Second-Year Whole Roast Chicken

It’s time to write up our weekly metaphorical blackboard one last time. And I thought given (a) the recent end to the strike and...

Why are you here?

We joke about it all the time: how we students start and finish assignments the night before the due date, disregard weekly readings, and...

Lucy Waverman’s Orecchiette with Caramelized Onions

As a child, one of my favourite pastimes was visiting my dad’s office and completing career tests online. (If you read this column regularly,...

Mrs. Scott’s Brownies

Something fishy

When I think about it, fish and chips are my favourite comfort food. I grew up on them during my childhood summers and two...

Banana Chocolate Loaf

Whether you’re a professional or an amateur, every cook has her one signature dish. For me—as embarrassing as it may be—it’s oatmeal. So pedestrian,...

Success with a side of spaghetti

Just a two-minute walk down Queen Street South from the Organique Juice Bar I wrote about earlier, UTM grad Jessica Iatomasi and her husband...

Dale’s Smoked Bacon Mac & Cheese

Frigid temperatures, top-speed winds, and a lathering of snow... Remember those summer days sprawled out on a lawn chair in your barest attire with...

Pogaca (Turkish Cheese Pastry)

I watch my fair share of competitive food programming—think Chopped or Top Chef—but I’ve never entered a cooking or recipe competition myself, whether to...

“Smoothie chef” opens juice bar

Eat internationally while on the go

Gaeng Kiew Warn Kai

I like my packed lunches (and, if necessary, dinners), as I discussed in “Eating good food? It’s in the bag” back in November. But...

Adequate Apple Crisp

So long, Mr. Turkey

Leftover-Eating Scuffins

This week we’re not featuring a UTM professor or staff member; instead, it’s just me, your dear features editor. We’ll cut them some slack...

(Not Your Average) Lemon Chicken

The long and winding road from here

Eating good food? It’s in the bag

Butternut Squash Soup

I get my best cooking tips from my family. (Although I’m not one to welcomingly heed my parents’ advice—I take it rather grudgingly.) Whom...

Mac and Chard

Each week, The Medium chats with a UTM professor or professional staff about one of their favourite recipes. I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian;...

Thai Chicken Thighs

Channels of culinary communication

It seems like every day I hear complaints about campus food. And I won’t pretend I don’t complain myself. But out of all the...

Pancake Day crêped up quickly this year

It happened again. I forgot about Pancake Tuesday. To think I let one of our few food holidays simply slip away is gut-wrenching. This...

Another continent, right around the corner

I’ve noticed the French Corner Bakery and Patisserie’s bright blue sign many times on my bus ride over to Westdale Mall to buy groceries...

Serving hospitality for seven years

How to eat better than you did last year

After a winter break filled with meals of roasted turkey, turkey soup, turkey sandwiches, turkey potpie (I think you get the idea), a slathering...

The gift that just keeps on taking

Don’t kid yourself—we’ve all received presents that were recycled, came with a hidden agenda, or just plain sucked. Time identified six types of bad...

Christmas in a cup on campus

Is it odd that the most prominent holiday decorations on campus are the Starbucks and Second Cup banners advertising their line of seasonal drinks?...

Snappy study snacks for students

OK, I’ll fess up: my bedtime is pretty early (in the morning); the bags under my eyes are getting darker (and I’ve given up...

UTM embraces its campus dad

There are quite a few things that separate UTM from other campuses. There’s our deer, our renovated school bus for a shuttle, and then...

Blind Duck is an on-campus escape

I’m not embarrassed that in nearly three years at UTM I haven’t been to a single pub night. I am embarrassed that in nearly...

Inside the professors’ lunchboxes

I daydream about food. In lecture, walking to campus, and even the moment I finish one meal I’m immediately thinking about what I’ll eat...

Good eats within reach

Two readings to do for Monday, countless exercises spread throughout this week, and a project proposal due the next: welcome to classes at UTM....

Faraway foods and “pho pas”

Madeleine Brown reviews Pho Big Bowl 2655 Liruma Road I talked about pho with friends, read about pho in food magazines, and watched specials about pho on...

Scrumptious subs

The sandwich is a brown-bag classic. Come university, it becomes not just the perfect choice for lunch, but sometimes breakfast and dinner too. It’s...

A mug, a microwave, a master chef

Tiring work schedules, complicated class timetables, and skimpy student budgets make fun and flexibility in the kitchen almost impossible (no, KD doesn’t count). And...

UTM’s tastiest chocolate chip cookie
