It’s Super Bowltime and the Student Activities Board is starting the second semester strong with a Super Bowl Cooking Show today at 5 p.m. in Parents Hall. The event will feature Sodexo Chef Jordan Roberts demonstrating how to make a variety of different tailgating themed foods that are easy to make even in a dorm room. The first 65 students to arrive will be rewarded with free food.
“The cooking show will be an interactive way for students to learn how to make Super Bowl foods such as salsa, guacamole, chicken wings and much more,” said Alex Caskey, the co-chair of Campus Impact.
SAB has done a cooking series in the past and themed shows off of everything from upcoming holidays to shows focused on specific ethnic groups.
“The events have been well-attended, the food is always really good and since it’s themed you can go to the events where you like the food,” SAB President Greg Larson said. “We try to target different pallets. It’s not very formal either, the chef will have a table and he’ll ask for students to come up and help and you can just shout out. There’s also a live camera feed so the people in the audience can see.”
First-year student Alison Richards has attended the cooking show series in the past.
“I liked that it’s a hands on demonstration and I then get to eat the food that is made at the end,” she said. She also plans on attending the event tonight. “I’m very excited to see quick appetizers that I could make as a college student and they won’t put a deep hole in my pocket.”
Immediately following the demonstration, students can participate in a beanbags tournament for a chance to win a gift card.
“We tried to incorporate bags because it fits in with the tailgating atmosphere,” Larson said.
Teams of two can sign up on the spot and the tournament will start around 6 p.m. just outside Parents Hall.
