Carmen's Kaiserschmarrn

Austrian Kaiserschmarrn is fun to make, and even more fun to eat. It makes one feel good, just as working for one’s fellow-students does, says Carmen – for today’s Cook on Campus is a member of the Students’ Council at LMU.

Aubergines in Coconut Milk

The Christkindl markets in Munich are already in business, Advent has just begun – and Neele, our latest Cook on Campus, is about to introduce the members of her regular German-Indian roundtable to the joys of homemade Christmas cookies.

Antonia‘s Oktoberfest Special

This time Cooks on Campus is wearing Dirndl and Lederhose, and staying at home: Instead of featuring recipes contributed by foreign students at LMU, we have chosen some typically Bavarian treats to go with the world’s largest popular festival – the Oktoberfest on Munich’s Wies’n.

Filipino Pork Kebabs
Everything is coming along nicely at the barbecue area Am Flaucher. The charcoal is glowing, the marinated meat kebabs are lined up waiting their turn on the griddle, Marielle has put the drinks in the Isar to chill. Only her guests are missing. “I really have no idea who’s coming this evening,” she says.

Serbian stuffed courgettes (Punjene tikvice)

Maša, who is studying Physics, has invited her mentor Philipp over for dinner. ”I think it’s a nice way to thank him for the help he has given me,” she says, when the dish is in the oven, and captivating aromas of meat and garlic begin to pervade the kitchen.

Cooks on CampusA voyage around the world’s kitchens with LMU: International students invite friends to help them prepare - and consume - their favorite dishes from home. And in the course of the evening they talk about their studies, LMU and how they settled in – and, of course, what they enjoy most in Munich when they’re not studying.

The tasty recipes from all over are delicious and will appeal to cooks of all levels of skill. The recipes will be assembled into an online cookery book, and provide unique insights into the culinary background, and other aspects of the cultural heritage of the many foreign students at the University. Bon appetit!
