Transforming dining hall food into gourmet meals

Priya Krishna graduated from Dartmouth College in 2013 with degrees in French and International Relations and Affairs. While she says being able to translate things from French to English is helpful, and IR fascinates her, it’s what else she did at Dartmouth that’s getting her attention these days.

Krishna wrote the book “Dining Hall Hacks” and is currently on a book tour taking her to dining halls across the country showing students they can create their own meals using the ingredients available in dining halls.

She was at Northeastern University’s Xhibition Kitchen on Wednesday, October 8 to share her tricks and tips. “This dining hall is amazing,” she said of Stetson West, home of the XK and one of several dining halls on campus. “I’ve been to more than 50 dining halls across the country, and this is the best.” She took ingredients offered in the dining hall and made some unique salads.
