RECIPES

Salmon Taco with Blueberry Kumquat Salsa

Brad will demonstrate how to prepare the Salmon Taco with Blueberry Kumquat Salsa at Blueberry Fest on Wednesday, July 18 from 12pm to 1pm outside the UBC Bookstore.

UBC Ponderosa Cake

If you’ve eaten at UBC in the past 50 years, you’ve probably seen UBC Ponderosa Cake. It’s banana bread’s cakey cousin: Fluffy banana cake squares bigger than your fist and topped with a sprinkling of chocolate chips.

Aloo Gobi

You may know Hunter Moyes as one of the Chefs behind the growth of local restaurants like Burgoo, Nuba, and Tacofino, among others. You may also know him from the premiere of Chopped Canada—Season 2, The Tiffin Project, or a number of campaigns and events involving organizations like Oxfam Canada and Greenpeace. Most importantly, you will now know him as the Chef behind the new menu at Feast in Totem Park.

UBC Cinnamon Bun

The UBC Cinnamon Bun recipe was first perfected by Hungarian Baker Grace Hasz in 1954. Within a few years she went from baking two dozen to a staggering 120 dozen per day.

Chef David’s Ultimate Veggie Burger

Over lunch one day in early November, Chef David took over the Square Meal station in Open Kitchen to serve up a delicious vegetarian/vegan menu. Here’s the recipe for the Ultimate Veggie Burger, featuring UBC Farm beets, crispy yams and smashed avocado lime tahini dressing on a soft brioche bun.
