11 cookery commandments all students live by

Dancing with death (or food poisoning, at the very least).

1. If something is cheap, buy a lot of it

Cans of tuna for 50c? I’LL TAKE THE LOT.

2. Your food press is sacred…

3. …But your parents’ food presses are fair game

A tin of beans here, a pack of queen cakes there… They’ll hardly miss them.

4. Carbs + carbs + carbs = A Good Dinner

You may not be getting your five-a-day, but at least you’re not hungry, right?

5. Food stealing is a serious crime

You have a half a block of cheese, tomato sauce, and some pasta to do you until Friday. You come home, and the cheese is gone.

This. Means. War.

6. Canteen meals for the first week of the month means Koka Noodles for the rest of it

This is you from March 1-7:

“Give me ALL the chicken goujons, kind sir.”

This is you from March 8-31:

“Chicken or beef flavour tonight?”

7. Drowning anything in sauce automatically makes it edible

Which is why you always have sweet chilli/ketchup/brown sauce to hand.

8. Anything can be a plate

Just use your imagination:

9. Defrosting meat in the microwave is FINE

It’s FINE. Ignore the screams of the haters.

10. Picking mould off bread is FINE

Just throw it in the toaster, be grand.

11. Cereal isn’t for breakfast, it’s for life

Every student’s dream:

Perfect for dinner, lunch, midnight snack, after a night out – with milk or dry. The ideal food.
