Not sure how to make proper tailgate foods when you are getting pumped up for that Brewer's or Panther Baseball game? No worries, UWM Executive Chef Matt Powers is teaching University Housing residents how to grill savory burgers, brats and other traditional tailgate foods tonight at 7 p.m. in the Sandburg.
This class is one of many in a UWM cooking class series aimed at helping students learn how to cook both the Wisconsin classics and the ethnic dishes so they can appreciate the art of independence despite having a conveniently located cafeteria in their building. In the past, Powers and his staff of professional chefs have taught students how to roll sushi, decorate cakes, and the cafe's delicious soups.
If students want to remake the recipes they learn at one of these classes, or simply want to whip out one of their homestyle favorites there are several locations within University Housing where residents can cook. All residents in Sandburg East Tower, Purin Hall, and Kenilworth Square Apartments have their very own kitchen located in their suite or apartment. Students residing in Cambridge Commons have a common kitchen available to them on every one of the building's six floors. RiverView residents can check out the kitchen next to the cafeteria by asking the front desk for the key. Similarly, students in the Sandburg Traditional Towers can check out the key to the kitchen located at the base of South Tower, which was recently stocked with pots, pans and utensils by the South Tower Activities Council.
Moral of the story, cooking is easy in University Housing...we even teach you how to do it!
