Dining With Duncan

Duncan at Hillfest, October 1998

In the fall of 1998, Collinsites' eating habits were elevated to previously unheard-of heights of sophistication by the appearance of a weekly column by freshman Duncan Teater. A regular feature of the Collins Columns, "Dining With Duncan" provided creative recipes made entirely from items available in the Edmondson Dining Hall. They will work equally well in your home kitchen. Collinsites.org is proud to present the entire run of "Dining With Duncan," in the hopes that it will bring to your daily meals a simple elegance you never knew they were lacking. In the immortal words of Martha Stewart, "It's a good thing."
