If you want us to include your favorite Yale-New Haven dish(es) please contact YaleCooks!  Or add your favorite dishes quickly by using the comments section (at the bottom of the page).

The first version of this list was created using the online survey data collected from members of the "Yale community" expressing interest in forming a New York City chapter of YaleCooks.

YaleCooks hopes to plan events where members of the Yale community will collaborate and cook together with the simple goal of creating satisfying versions of their favorite Yale-New Haven dishes.

YaleCooks will share these "copy cat" recipes.
