We are a partnership project involving the 3 main further and higher education institutions of Sheffield, the local community food network, Grow Sheffield, and Fareshare Yorkshire.
We aim to raise sustainability awareness amongst students and staff in higher education, further education and the communities of Sheffield through a focus on food.
Students from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam spent six weeks in a sustainable cookery course, taught by catering students at Sheffield College.
Preparing seasonal dishes with local ingredients, the two universities went head to head, cooking a six course meal for fifty guests. Their prize? A day’s experience in a Michelin starred kitchen.
It’s time to find out which university was crowned the winner of Sheffield on a Plate’s sustainable Masterchef.

After a summer of taking care of the Student Eats allotment, I couldn’t help but notice how much fruit was growing completely effortlessly all around. It struck me how completely mad it would be… (not) making use of the food that is already growing by itself in far greater quantities than we could ever manage on our small plot of land.
