Golden Spatula Competition

Sunday Supper

University Catholic invites you  to form a team to host Sunday Supper.  We will pay for the groceries, up to $100.  You and your team will plan the menu, shop for groceries, prepare the meal, serve it and clean up.  It’s a great community builder.

Each week guests will rate their meal in top secret.  At the end of the year, we’ll award the Golden Spatula, which will include a dinner certificate for the winning team. 

Want to show off our culinary skills?

Sign up here.


  • You will be given a $100 Kroger gift card to buy groceries for Sunday Supper (any money spent over the $100 card will be from your own pocket!)
  • Come to Frassati House by 5pm on the Thursday before Sunday Supper to retrieve the gift card from Caroline Duffy
  • Have a general menu plan ready to present to Caroline when you go to retrieve the gift card
  • Frassati will provide plates, cups, napkins, and utensils for Sunday Supper
  • Frassati will also provide water and lemonade for Sunday Supper (if desired, any additional beverages must be purchased by the group)
  • Feel free to use food resources from the Frassati pantry
  • Dinner must be ready by 5:45pm on Sunday
Thank you for competing for the Golden Spatula!  Groups are scored on three main categories by Sunday Supper attendees: taste; creativity & originality; and hospitality & service.  Extra points will be awarded for cleanliness and staying under the $100 budget.  At the end of the semester, the points will be tallied, and the lucky winners will receive a $100 gift card to a restaurant of their choice!
