A taste of St Catharine's Day

The College Archivist and Catering & Conferencing Director have worked together to identify dishes served at Commemoration Dinners on St Catharine's Day in years gone by.

Four of these dishes were served at lunchtime on 25 November 2021 and will return on 25 November 2022. The kitchen will also be baking cattern cakes as a dessert option, which are a traditional feast day treat for St Catharine's Day (once widely celebrated across England and known as Catterntide). 

Recipes have been provided so that members of the St Catharine's community who are not able to eat lunch in College can incorporate a taste of our celebrations into their plans for the day.
