Alumni share their recipes for success with new students

Welcome to all our new students from the alumni community.

Over the summer, we've cooked up a little welcome gift for you! Our alumni have shared simple recipes that reminds them of their time at Imperial. These have been transformed into recipe cards and attached to a limited edition #OurImperial wooden spoon, which you can use to kick-start your culinary adventures. They feature alongside crab curry recipe from Nawamin Pinpathomrat (MSc Medicine 2015) - a finalist on BBC1's Masterchef earlier this year!

New students can pick up your free recipe card and spoon from the Alumni Relations team at Fresher's Fair and iConnect to get some sage advice from former Imperial students.

Alumni, do you have a recipe to share?

If you have a dish that reminds you of your time at Imperial, you can share it with us using this formalong with any message you have for new students. Please include a photo of you from your Imperial days if you have one, or even better, if you have a photo of you and your friends. Remember the kitchen space you had to work with and keep it simple and cheap! If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at
