Mark Segal, Executive Guest Chef
The Department of Hospitality Management, Advanced Food and Beverage Management class presents the spring 2013 gourmet dinner.
A tribute to the history of the Gourmet Dinners. Drawing on the inspiration from those before, our dishes will offer unique interpretations of dishes from the past, as we recreate a menu-influenced by the triumphs of our alumni - that is uniquely our own.

At multiple times during the academic year, Advanced Food and Beverage students majoring in Department of Hospitality Management delight the University community with themed Gourmet Dinners. The Gourmet Dinners are an opportunity for students to apply fundamentals learned through classes in the program, and give the students real-world, hands-on experience. Students are responsible for all aspects of the event: planning and preparing the menu, selling and marketing the event, managing finances, and creating an enjoyable night for all who attend.
