Students at the University of East Anglia have proved themselves to be the cream of the crop when it comes to cooking, placing second in a list of the top ten most culinary accomplished students.
When you think student cooking, it's likely you think of Pot Noodles and takeaway pizzas, but according to new research, the University of East Anglia is home to some of the most creative student chefs in the country.
Based on entries from the 2015 Student Cook of the Year competition, the research carried out by LoSalt, produced a list of the top ten most culinary accomplished educational institutions, with Sheffield taking the coveted top spot, UEA just behind in second place and Cambridge finishing in tenth.
Clare Parry, UEA Communications Officer, said: 'We're glad that our students here at the University of East Anglia are so enthusiastic about cooking and keen to share their ideas on social media.
'Eating well no only sets them up for study but also, as demonstrated here, is a great way to connect with other people.'
