Cook's Holiday Dinner

Join Dining Services for the 33rd annual Cook’s Holiday special event, featuring an array of campus favorites. Creamy southern style shrimp and grits, roasted turkey breast, wild mushroom risotto, toasted butter pecan cookies, chocolate espresso cake, and more will be served. Enjoy festive decorations and musical accompaniments while dining.

In order to support students as they finish their academic semester, Dining Services provides meal plan service in all five dining commons through the last day of finals. This year, the last day of finals and meal plan service occur on Thursday, December 12. To accommodate this schedule and continue to offer multiple serving times for Cook’s Holiday, the event will be hosted on the Friday and Saturday after finals. Saturday’s menu will be modified slightly to feature a special omelet station for brunch while also serving several of the traditional menu favorites. 

Cook’s Holiday will be held at Bolton Dining Commons. General seating will be available for every meal, and reserved seating will be available for the lunch and brunch service times. Standard parking rates apply. Attendees are encouraged to carpool or use campus transit.

Tickets, which are nonrefundable, can be purchased online or in person at the box office of the Tate Student Center weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
