Exec Profiles 2016

UBC Food Society has a fun collection of executives that even Gordon Ramsay would befriend. You will want to meet them, as they are all esteemed members of society. To be a member of UBC Food Society is like eating from the plate of Kings on the Iron Throne. Or being Bobby Flay. Same feeling.

That’s a pretty hard question to answer since all tasty foods are created equal in my opinion. But a salad (bed of raw veggies?) would be perfect as a base for any dish since it’s so versatile. You can add any type of protein and dressing to create different combinations of flavour.
