Skidmore Dining Services
Skidmore College Dining provides more than just your average dining experience. We strive to provide the best service, experience and most importantly, the most delicious cuisine!
Our "all you care to eat" policy provides you with plenty to eat while you are dining in the Murray-Aikins Dining Hall. The food individuals select must be consumed in the dining hall; they may not take anything out except for a piece of hand fruit, an ice cream cone, cup of coffee or a cookie per meal.
We encourage anyone with a food allergy to contact a member of the management team for additional information and/or support.
Chefs and Professors Offer Lifestyle Course in D-hall
Focaccia was on the menu as part of the interdisciplinary course "Food for Thought". A few weeks ago students prepared carrot dishes (soup, carrot-apple slaw, and carrot-potato latkes) after harvesting carrots at local CSA Pitney Farm.
This course brings together Skidmore’s mission of combining mind and hand. The mind part includes reading and writing about Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma and Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential. The hand part includes cooking (and eating) with chefs Rose, Niese and Fields. No cellphones, table set with proper crockery and linens: appetites are high and conversation abounds.
