Student Cookbook

Student Cookbook

The Arc Student Cookbook is an annual publication compiled from recipes submitted by UNSW Students. The Cookbook celebrates the diversity of the UNSW community through the exchange of recipes, stories and the shared interest of food, with a conscience towards sustainable and budget friendly ingredients.


Cookbook Volunteers compile the recipes to produce a professional-looking publication every year as well as help manage the Cookbook launch event. The Student Cookbook is also hoping to expand to have a continuous online presence through a Student Cookbook blog.
