Culinary Team

Table with many dishes of food

Each month, Cheryl and Sean open their home to Dunster residents for the Faculty Deans' Open House, a chance to gather and enjoy each other's company along with tasty home-cooked food!

The culinary team dreams up and executes the menus for open houses. The themes are often inspired by the seasons, holidays, and current events. Whether it’s warm and cozy fall dishes, bright and colorful spring spreads, or traditional Chinese new year treats, each menu is different and delicious. Along with the culinary team Resident Tutors, Gabriel, Marielle, Rahima, and Bridger, students of all cooking abilities join in the preparation of these feasts. 

We invite you to sign up to be members of the culinary team, or to simply come and enjoy the food and the company!

While classes are held remotely, the culinary team will put together a Dunster House Cookbook (with your input!) and will host online cooking classes. Be sure to join!
