Cooking with Jules recipes

Head Chef Jules Smith

Trinity’s dining hall may be closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but our head chef Julian Smith is still cooking! So we’ve asked him and his team to send some of the recipes they are working on at home! If you are looking for some tried and tested recipes while working and cooking from home, these are a great place to start. They are also being posted on the Trinity College Instagram account (@trinitycollegeox).
