Penn College Savors the Kentucky Derby


Follow Penn College culinary students as they experience the 2018 Kentucky Derby as key members of the Levy Restaurants team. Twenty-eight students and 10 alumni spent five long, fulfilling days cooking for thousands of patrons at the prestigious clubs and suites overlooking iconic Churchill Downs. The one-of-a-kind experience at the renowned event is a valuable component of the students’ culinary education. “I don’t think anyone can understand how much food – and how high of a quality the food is – without actually seeing it and being here in the dining room looking at it,” culinary arts and systems student Bridget M. Callahan says in a 16-minute documentary added to the college’s YouTube channel. “It’s a lot of work during the week, but once you walk out there, it’s pretty awesome.”
