Students in the nutrition and dietetics program at Marywood are in the process of creating their very own cookbook, but they’re still looking for recipes to include.

Everyone in the Marywood community, including students, faculty and staff, is invited to submit recipes for the cookbook.

Nutrition Graduate Assistant Amanda Sandroni said that she wanted to revamp the nutrition and dietetics program and increase community involvement.

“Marywood is a very diverse campus,” Sandroni said. “I feel as though [the cookbook] is a perfect way to get everyone to come together and go down memory lane, even if they’re from another country. Besides, everyone likes food. Why not try something different?”

According to Dr. Diane DellaValle, a nutrition and dietetics associate professor, people don’t have to worry about their recipes being healthy.

“We don’t want them to think that just because it’s coming from the nutrition program, it has to be healthy,” DellaValle said. “We want recipes that make you feel at home and are personal to you.”

DellaValle also said that they’ve received about 45 submissions for the cookbook already. Some of these include homemade chicken pot pie, vegan chili, fluffy pancakes and spinach squares.

The official publication date for the cookbook has yet to be decided, but DellaValle said that it will potentially be during the fall 2019 semester.

Money raised from cookbook sales will go towards funding future professional conferences for the nutrition and dietetics program at Marywood.

The deadline to submit recipes is Friday, Nov. 30. Contact [email protected] for more information.
