menumuseum.eu, created by academics from the university’s School of Sport and Service Management, was led by Principal Lecturer Dr Ioannis Pantelidis, a hospitality industry expert.
Dr Pantelidis said: “The website is an archive of more than 500 menus and an interactive teaching tool that can be used to review and analyse trends in menu design, pricing, and food and beverage trends.
“The website can be used by academics and students both inside and outside the University of Brighton – it is free and available to all educators and researchers provided any use of its content is for educational purposes.
“Users can upload menus so the archive is growing all the time.”
The website recently helped the university team win an award for “innovation and excellence in hospitality management” from the Council of Hospitality Management Education.
