Vice Chancellors Chicken Dinner:

Like the look of what the VC was eating in the film? Fancy making it for yourself? Here is a nice little recipe which may just help you achieve a meal fit for a king (or vice chancellor)


1 large chicken

Chorizo sausage

4 baking potatoes

2 red peppers

2 green peppers

2 red onions





Olive oil


1.Bone the chicken and quarter (this can be quite difficult to do so ask your butcher to do it, or alternatively, buy a pack of drumsticks, legs and thighs)
2. Set to one side and dice your potatoes up into cubes. Par boil the potatoes (for around 10 minutes) drain. Set to one side
3. Take a large baking tray, season with olive oil and garlic. Add the chicken, potatoes, slices of red peppers, green peppers, quarters of red onion, and some chunks of the chorizo sausage. Drizzle over some more olive oil, sprinkle of salt, pepper and a dusting of paprika
4. Place in a hot oven at 190 degrees for an 45. Check the chicken after 45 minutes to see whether the juices are running clear. If not, stick back in the oven for a further 20 minutes.
5. Serve with a bit of salad and crusty bread.

Guess Who’s Coming For Dinner?

Flat D5 at Ranmoor village, University of Sheffield were recently taken by surprise when university ‘head honcho’, Professor Keith Burnett, popped in for a spot of dinner. Taking time out from his busy agenda (which included meeting the queen that week!), Professor Burnett came for a traditional student night in. On the menu that night, the flat mates rustled up some fantastic Goats Cheese Bruschetta, a Roast Chicken and Chorizo sausage and a fantastic Apple and Blackcurrant Crumble!

The evening was a brilliant success, and Professor Keith’s knowledge of Wayne’s World One and Two astounding!

The meal came to around thirty quid all together which fed five with plenty left over! Big thanks to Executive Chef ,Tracy Carr for putting together the mystery box!

Kat on Kampus

Sheffield University has some wonderful places to eat out at on campus. I had a great day sampling some of the wonderful food (and drink!) across campus. I have to say out of all the places we went, the international food court was the absolute winner hands down, what a fantastic initiative! I had a chicken fajita which was enormous and kept me going throughout the shoot and also a portion of nachos smothered in sour cream, guacamole and salsa! Never knew student food could be so good!

I would recommend the University arms to any one wanting that first pint after a long day in the library, the atmosphere is brilliant and the staff very friendly (not to mention their huge range of beers and ciders)

When it comes to style, there is nowhere quite like the edge café and some of the pizza’s and pastries being knocked out of the kitchen looked fantastic!

Just want to say a big thanks to all the staff who made my day soooo tasty and would encourage anyone reading this to get out and try for yourself!
