Action weeks "DIY-Mensa: Cook yourself your favorite dish!"

You have an ingenious recipe that others absolutely have to try? The cafeteria doesn't serve your favorite meal again? No more - because now it's up to you: in our action weeks "DIY-Mensa: Cook yourself your favorite dish!" you can finally swing the wooden spoon yourself! Cook your favorite dish as a team together with our kitchen crew, convince your fellow students of your creation and win attractive prizes!

How does it work?

You register as a team of 1-3 people via email to for the action week. We will then contact the selected teams.
Every Tuesday or Wednesday, a team will cook in the participating cafeteria. Of course, the dish goes on regular sale afterwards! At the end of the campaign weeks, the dish that has been sold the most wins.

We need the following information from you when you register:

Name and contact information of all participants, T-shirt sizes and of course your recipe. The recipe must be suitable for large-scale catering and described as comprehensibly as possible - the more precise, the better!

What do we offer you?

  • Cooking with the professionals - including tips and tricks from our cooks!
  • T-shirt from the Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg
  • Your own cooking apron to take home

The winning team will also receive

  • Credit in the amount of 50 euros each for your Mensa cards.
  • Inclusion of the recipe idea in our regular recipes and thus a dish for all subsequent student generations!

Conditions of participation:

  • You are enrolled at one of our universities or colleges.
  • You have time to cook on a Tuesday or Wednesday during the campaign.
  • Before your cooking appointment you will take part in an instruction according to § 43 Infektionsschutzgesetz (IfSG) at the Landratsamt Erlangen-Höchstadt. It takes 30-40 minutes and the costs are covered by the Studentenwerk! Unfortunately, no one is allowed in the kitchen area of the Mensa without it. By the way, the certificate is valid for life.
