About the Gourmet Dining Series

During the academic year, Advanced Food and Beverage students majoring in Hospitality Management delight the University community and beyond with dining experience. The "Dinner and Brunch series are an opportunity for students to apply fundamentals learned through classes in the Hospitality Management Program, and give the students real-world, hands-on experience. Students are responsible, with instructional guidance from faculty, 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.

BUY TICKETS

We are excited to offer a restaurant-style prix fixe menu this semester, instead of the banquet style service we’ve done in the past. When registering, you will select a seating time and the number of people in your party. Reservations will be taken accordingly through our reservation page.

Those arriving prior to their reserved seating time can relax in our cocktail room until their table is ready. Seating times start at 5:30 pm and tables will be seated in 15 minute intervals. Space is limited to 100 people per event, with 20 guests seated during each reservation time.

    Fall 2015 dates will be posted soon

    What to Expect

    Greetings from UNH Hospitality Management Advanced Food and Beverage Class!

    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.

    Cancelations & 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.

    Gourmet Dinner Events

    A cash bar will be available. Throughout the event 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 hours to put on this event. The entire process from marketing to polishing and sorting silverware is made possible by our students.
