Marcelo Miranda named campus executive chef

Marcelo Miranda has been appointed Sodexo’s new Campus Executive Chef. His responsibilities include overseeing all food operations on campus.

“My main role is improve the quality and assure Sodexo standards are met,” said Miranda, who also plans to focus on menu design, recipe creation and cost control of food.

Miranda says his main priority this year will be consistency and to make sure the culinary staff receives training in all styles of cooking. He also hopes to be able to have more variety in food that is offered.

In order to gauge student satisfaction on the food, Miranda says it is important to talk to his customers, which he notes is also the quickest and most efficient way to measure satisfaction. Lian Chen, Student Union Secretary, has also sent out several emails with a survey on dining services for students to fill out.

Menus are planned in four-week cycles each semester and are usually seasonal. “We take in culinary trends, local products and vendors, and what is our customers base and dietary needs,” stated Miranda. There are also special menus for holidays, such as Halloween.
