Caius engineers go to cookery school

  • 04 May 2018

It has become an annual tradition for the Director of Studies to organise a team building event for first-year engineers. A chance for students and Fellows to have fun and bond away from College and the Department.

Organised by Dr Rasha Rezk, Caius Bye-Fellow and Director of Studies in Engineering, this year’s event was a cooking class at the Cambridge Cookery School. Along with Professor Malcolm Smith, Professor Rob Miller and Dr Glenn Vinnicombe, Dr Rezk and all first-year engineers worked together to produce an Italian feast; making pasta from scratch, and three sauces and accompaniments (Pesto, Ragù, and Broccoli and Chilli).

Speaking after the event, Dr Rezk said: “Students and Fellows had so much fun together, the hands-on cooking experience was a great way to know the students outside supervisions and labs.”

After brushing up on their cooking skills and mastering the art of pasta making, everyone sat down to enjoy their homemade meal, along with a glass of wine. 

Thank you to Dr Simon Schoenbuchner for taking the photos, and to Dr Rezk for sharing them with us.

  • Keen problem-solvers in Year 12 are invited to enter the Gonville & Caius Engineering Challenge which asks them to inspire younger students to think like an engineer, and come up with solutions for recycling challenges – a highly topical issue. Winners will receive a cash prize to be shared with their school. The closing date is 29 May 2018.
