Cornell Dining Update


The SA Committee on Dining Services is off to an exciting start for Fall 2010. Our first meeting took place at the recently redesigned Hughes Dining, a western-themed eatery serving dishes ranging from Pulled Pork with mango slaw and cornbread to tender, slow-cooked Brisket. Breakfast is served all day!

At the meeting we heard special presentations from Jason Huck, General Manager of the Cornell Dairy, and our Faculty Advisor, Professor Joe Regenstein. Mr. Huck came to explain the extensive, 3 year renovation effort which the Dairy is about to undergo. While production for Cornell Ice Cream has halted, there is a 9 month supply in reserves, currently being served at Trillium Express. In the interim, Perry’s Ice Cream will be served on campus. Furthermore, Cornell Dining will be working with Perry’s Ice Cream to create some new, innovative flavors.

The dining committee looks forward to meeting again on Tuesday September 28th, 5:30 PM in Trillium. All are welcome to attend, and at the top of the agenda is a special presentation from Matt LeRoux, Marketing Specialist from Cornell Cooperative Extension, Tompkins County. Mr. LeRoux will be leading a discussion on issues of sustainability and our most recent local beef initiatives.

Finally, the Fall Harvest Dinner, a wide array of food produced  from local, regional and New York State farms and merchants, will be Thursday September 30th in Robert Purcell Community Center, beginning at 5:30 PM. For more information and a view of the menu, go to

Hope to see you all there!

More later,

Jon Rau

Chair, SA Committee on Dining Services

    Here at Perry’s we are so excited to become a part of Cornell University community and look forward to bringing premium Perry’s Ice Cream to campus! We also feel confident our ice cream will be up to the task to continue the traditions of Cornell Dairy Ice Cream. 4th generation family owned and operated Perry’s continues to make ice cream one batch at a time, following the slow churning process that gives our ice cream a distinct, cooked flavor.
