Pregunta y Respuesta: Food
Hola! So I have decided to post three theme-based question and answer (or pregunta y respuesta) articles. See below for more!
1) Where do you eat on campus? Why?
There are three main dining facilities to eat at on campus: Collis Café, Courtyard Café and 53 Commons. In addition, one can find great baked goods and sandwiches at these inner-library dining shops: King Arthur Flour and Novack Café. For all the dining spaces, the food at Dartmouth is pretty great. If I had to select my favorite dining facility however, I would choose 53 Commons (also known as FoCo) because 53 Commons always has a variety of foods to select from and combining the varied foods can create tasty, novel dishes that are out of this world.
2) In the midst of your busy schedule, what do you do to compensate for learning how to cook whilst in college?
At Dartmouth, because of the numerous opportunities to get involved in activities, it is easy to never cook and only rely upon the great dining facilities for regular meals. However, I think it is really important to learn how to cook, even in the midst of a typical Dartmouth schedule. Fortunately, there are many cooking organizations on campus that provide an opportunity for students to learn how to cook, while hanging out with crafty people with a food mission. Amongst these organizations are Spoon University, Students Fighting Hunger, affinity houses and more. If not able to attend some of the cooking events of these organizations, one can still learn to cook on their own. Just set aside an hour and a half of your day, select dishes from Pinterest to cook and pay a visit to the Dartmouth Coop to purchase needed ingredients to prepare a wonderful meal for yourself and friends.
3) What off-campus dining facilities would you recommend and why?
All of them are great in my opinion. The site below is also helpful for selecting restaurants to eat at in Hanover. Lastly, I would recommend visiting a food both during Hanover’s Farmers Market, which occurs every summer and fall.
