Back for its second season, University Student Commons and Activities (USC&A) is proud to present Francis Fancies Food, a video series meant to empower students with the knowledge to make tasty and affordable dishes. The series features host Francis Stephens, a marketing graduate assistant at USC&A pursuing his masters of education in english at VCU, as he uses simple ingredients to cook a variety of dishes. Stephens will show his viewers how “fancy foods” can be made with ease and on any budget. For the second season, different skills will the featured in each episode.
“Students are shown great recipes with key skills they need if they want to excel and get comfortable with cooking – we focus on techniques that students may not have been exposed to in their life but definitely need if they want to create great dishes for themselves and others,” Stephens said. “All of the dishes and techniques were chosen with health, budget and taste in mind.”
While focused on students at VCU, Stephens explained that “anybody can get something from the series. It’s very important that people know how to cook. Not only is it helpful, but people may realize they like cooking more than they thought.”
Featuring entrees like Ratatouille and Chicken and Waffles, there will be a new episode uploaded every Friday during #2022Debut!
