We would like to thank our sponsors. Without their generosity we could not offer the beautiful, often local, items on the menu and around the dining room. We would also not be able to offer tickets to students in need.

All sponsors will be listed on our sponsorship page on this website and menu the night of the dinner. We greatly appreciate your support as this is a non-profit experience.

What to Expect

Greetings from UNH Hospitality Advanced Food and Beverage Class!

Gourmet Dinners

 

The Fundamentals

  • Purchases are not refundable.
  • Gourmet Dinners are not suitable for children.
  • The dinners will be held rain, shine or snow.
  • You will receive directions in a confirmation email that will be sent approximately 14 days prior to dinner. Directions are also available on this site.
  • Alternative meals due to food allergies or vegetarian diets are available for the event. While we certainly respect dietary choices, we're unable to create additional menus for those with likes and dislikes. We would be happy to recommend restaurants that may be better suited for your enjoyment. Keep in mind, this is a new learning experience for our students and to offer multiple menus is very difficult for professional caterers, let alone students. 
  • Dinners are served seated and the largest table accommodates 10 guests. If you prefer to have your party sit together, please type first and last names in the ‘notes’ field at the bottom of the ticket purchase page when you make your reservation.
  • Our green mission: food scraps are composted through UNH dining, and we strive to buy local when feasible and available. We do recycle.

 

What to Wear

Suitable attire for Gourmet Dinners held on campus at Paul College - suit and tie for men, and suit, dress or other fine attire for women is highly recommended. This is a fine dining experience. Outerwear and umbrellas will be collected at the welcome table to help the evening feel more intimate and comfortable.

 

Cancellations & Ticket Transfers

Refunds are NOT available. You are welcome to transfer your reservation to friends or family or to that nice person you met on Facebook but you absolutely MUST contact us with a first and last name and an email address for the new ticket holder 5 days prior to the event.

 

Reservations

Reservations may be made online by going to https://www.events.unh.edu/RegistrationForm.pm?event_id=15605. Tickets are $60 for purchase online only. Tickets will not be sold at the door. We do not accept credit cards by phone or checks at the door.

 

Evening Event

Your evening begins at 5:00pm with a cocktail hour in the Paul College Great Hall, 10 Garrison Avenue on UNH's main campus in Durham. Dinner will be from 6:00-8:00pm. Beverages will be served if you choose to incur the cost (beverages are generally not included in the $60 menu price) and then a delectable meal with local food when available will be served beginning at 6:05pm. Throughout the evening you'll have a chance to share a glass of wine with old and new friends, eat amazing food, and unwind, all the while helping to support UNH hospitality students. A brief speech by the students will conclude the evening with a toast to all who worked long, difficult at times, hours to put on this event. The entire process from marketing to polishing and sorting silverware is provided on behalf of our students.

 

Sponsors

If you are interested in sponsoring an item on the menu, entertainment, décor including floral arrangements, please contact Donna Stickney at donna.stickney@unh.edu . All sponsors will be listed on our sponsorship page on this website and menu night of the dinner. We greatly appreciate your support as this is a nonprofit function.
