The Collegetown Kitchen is a living diary of what our writers and experts are cooking, but it is also a point of reference for cooks of all calibers. There are basic recipes every student should know, like how to roast vegetables, fry eggs, and make chocolate chip cookies without a mixer. But there is also chicken confit and risotto, which aren't as difficult as they sound. In addition, there are guides to creating a functional pantry with shopping lists tailored to the kind of cook you are. There's an equipment guide that tells you exactly what you need in your kitchen, and there are different options for that too. There's guidance on food safety and also how to take care of a cast iron skillet, the versatile friend of a nifty cook.
