Good news for all Fordie’s foodies! Fordham has joined the 45 nationwide campuses with contributing students to Spoon University. Spoon University serves as an online guide for students to local on and off campus cuisine and beyond.
The Spoon’s national homepage provides articles from national contributors about all things food related. The national homepage also includes selected articles from over 1,000 student contributors and posts those that pertain to all college foodies, despite their location.
The Fordham University Spoon Chapter serves to provide Fordham students with a guide among the chaos that can be dining in NYC and on a college campus. As of the chapter’s launch last week, articles include a dorm-friendly recipe for a pumpkin spice mug cake and an article on the five best places to have tea in NYC.
Sophomore and Spoon journalist, Jess Mannino sought interest in the newly forming chapter because of her love for both the culinary and literary arts. Says Mannino on her new journalistic undertaking: “As a writer for Spoon University, I have been able to wed my love for writing and my love for food in a way that is conducive to learning about what it means to experience and to articulate experience.”
Mannino encourages even those students who haven’t yet awakened their inner Anthony Bourdain to read the Spoon for inspiration! “Reading this blog is a great way to become foodies by proxy,” explains Mannino. “With recipes, how-to's, suggestions, reviews, and tips, our team writes and photographs to cater to all of your wildest food inquiries.”
