What Has Happened Since

Since the pitch, we have worked diligently to fully flesh out what we want to do throughout this process. We decided that we want to focus highly on our video production, our recipes, and on our two stage competition process. For the video production, we have accumulated a list of potential guest cooks for the videos, as well as gaining an understanding for the style we would like our videos to be produced in. We have also started composing our recipe lists that is currently close to 50 recipes. The only aspect that we have not done much work on is our competitions, but we have outlined how we want the events to work. We are in the state of our project that requires us to organize the paperwork needed to host the competitions as well as begin recording for the videos on our currently functional website.

Currently, we have not touched the funding that we received from our pitch. However,  we have a plan as to how we will be using the majority of our funds. The majority of our funds will be used to host our website and to compose three totes of cooking supplies to be used during our competitions and later be rented out to students once Campus Cooks becomes a club. The remainder of our funds will be used for advertising and for the golden spatula prize for winning the cooking competition.

The biggest we are having as a group is finding the time to work on or project. We all have very busy schedules this semester and it is becoming increasingly difficult to set aside a few hours each week to work on our project. We are working around this problem by keeping each other accountable through email and collaborative to-do lists.

The Start of Campus Cooks

We are Campus Cooks, an internet based cooking teaching source that strives to teach students how to cook good food for cheap rather than always going out to eat or going to the Kline Campus Center.

This idea came to us on the day of our pitch because the group who presented before us presented the same project idea that we planned to pursue. So, the four members we had in attendance removed ourselves from the lecture hall and brainstormed this concept during another group’s presentation. During our pitched, we focused a great deal on video’s detailing how to make multiple meals as well as a recipe list that contains distinctions of some recipes being gluten and/or lactose free. During the presentation, a member of the audience brought up the idea of hosting a cooking competition which we also agreed would be a very good idea.

After our presentation, we received $450 for our project as well as rather positive feedback about our project. The most notable recommendations were to create totes filled with cooking supplies for students(this was recommended because most residents halls do not offer communal cooking supplies) and to use the RAs in our group to have a bigger pull to our cooking competition.
