Food For Thought: Ashley Dell’osa

December 1, 2012

Ashley Dell’Osa ’13: ‘Smart Ones for the smart one.’

“I feel like I’m constantly on the go. I wish I had more time and money to cook and have healthier food,” Dell’Osa said. “[Cooking] definitely goes on the back burner just because I’m so busy during the day. I’m trying to eat healthy and it’s difficult because I’m always on the go.”

Major: environmental studies

Hometown: Enumclaw, Wash.

What home cooked meal she misses most: beef stroganoff

Craziest food she’s tasted: Pickled chicken feet during a semester study away in Trinidad and Tobago. “It was very gummy,” Dell’Osa said. “You sucked on it and then you had to spit out the bones. It was the weirdest texture I had ever eaten.”

Dell’Osa adds some sliced grape tomatoes to her salad.
