UNI Dining Services started publishing recipe card packets in 1993 and decided to create a cookbook after receiving continuous requests from UNI staff, students, alumni and guests.

According to Carol Fletcher, assistant director of residential dining, "Best Bites" took more than three years to create, and UNI Dining Services consulted with staff, guests and students to decide which recipes to include. The cookbook includes old favorites such as Panther Chili, Pumpkin Bread and Broccoli Grape Salad, as well as new additions like Pita Crisp and Champagne Truffles.

The cookbook costs $12.50 and can be purchased on campus from Biscotti's, 23rd Street Market, Piazza and Panther Pantry. For more information, contact Fletcher at 319-273-2333 or
