"Cut the Salt and rethink flavor development from the ground up" is one of the core principles of healthy, sustainable menus that make up the Menus of Change initiative. Cornell Dining is taking this to heart, and our new Flavor Stations are a big step.
Twin salt and pepper shakers have been taking up space on dining room tables, as well as undue attention, for decades. We're replacing those with Flavor Stations at each of our dining rooms where you'll be able to find a wide variety of spices, sauces, and other flavor enhancers so you can customize your meal's flavor to your tastes.
Our chefs will of course have the opportunity to "spice up" the Flavor Stations in their individual dining rooms as they see fit, so as you dine around campus, you'll be able to try a slightly different variety of flavors everywhere you go.
Look for Himalayan pink salt and real black peppercorns in grinders, a custom Italian herb blend, spices perfect for fresh vegetables, grated cheese, honey, hot sauces, and lots more you can add to your meal. Got any suggestions, or favorites from home? Please let our chefs know what you'd like to see at the Flavor Stations!
