Does your student know how to poach an egg? Know the best way to peel garlic? How about learning ways to make three meals out of one roasted chicken? If not, they can check out Michigan Dining’s “Kitchen Hacks” videos, posted on the Michigan Dining Facebook page and the MDining YouTube channel to find out these tips and many more.

MDining staff originated produced-at-home videos during the original 10-day stay-in-place order on campus. Mike Olsen, MDining's videographer, coordinated the culinary team to turn around a video each day during the stay-in-place. The goal was to help students learn some easy kitchen hacks from their homes. The rest is history as the videos quickly took off and are now starring MDining managers and support staff creating videos from their own kitchens.

Be sure to save your favorite videos to use later.
