The details… RIVERRAT RECIPES College is tough; cooking shouldn’t be.

“Been there, done that” is pretty lame. But when it comes to cooking in college, “been there, done that” is the best recipe for success.

Lovingly collected by the faculty and staff of the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) – including many alumni – to welcome incoming students, RIVERRAT RECIPES offers a contemporary twist on time-tested favorites that served the contributors well during their college years and beyond.

From “Oh, No! I have to go to a party in 3 hours” to breakfast, lunch and dinner fare, the recipes are easily prepared, with inexpensive ingredients adaptable for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans. The appetizers, sides, salads, main courses, pastas and desserts are sure to be a hit with palates of all ages!

A New Cafeteria Service At MIAD

The details… 4 July 2011
Dear Students,
I’m excited to announce that MIAD will have a new food service vendor beginning the Fall Semester. MIAD has contracted with D&S/Davians, a Wisconsin based family owned company specializing in small retail food service operations (like MIAD’s) and high end catering for special events.
Because it is a Milwaukee area company we will have a more flexible menu, fresher food items, and a management team that will be responsive to student needs. D&S will also offer a variety of grab & go food items students can take home, heat & serve. Both the Café and the Student Union will be offering grab and go items for added convenience.
Another exciting innovation D&S is bringing is an entirely retail food operation. In the past residential students have been required to pay for the meal plan, whether or not they were dining in the Café. Beginning in August the food service is entirely voluntary; students can dine in the Café when they want, take only what they want, and pay for only the food items they take. So we’ll have a great combination of improved food quality and variety, more responsive management, and a retail operation where students pay for only the food items they want.
One change this will bring for students is that the Café will be operating on a cash, credit card, or debit card basis. Given that few students carry cash around you will need a credit card or debit card. The Student Union will also take credit and debit cards beginning in August further expanding the usefulness of obtaining a card. Look for more information to come soon on gift cards that can be used in the cafeteria. A declining balance gift card will replace the commuter meal plan.
