Penn College’s Fall Food Show Slated for Dec. 1

Feast your eyes on the artistic final projects of students in Pennsylvania College of Technology’s baking and pastry and culinary arts majors on Dec. 1 at the college’s Fall Food Show.

The event, open to the public from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the college’s Thompson Professional Development Center, will feature a display of eye-pleasing, student-made desserts, hors d’oeuvre trays, chocolate sculptures and more, along with interactive tastings through 1 p.m.

A dessert prepared by R. Colby Janowitz received first prize in its category at Penn College’s Spring 2017 Food Show. Students will again display their works for the public at the Fall 2017 Food Show on Dec. 1 in the college’s Thompson Professional Development Center.

The pieces, all class projects for the students, will be judged by a panel from the hospitality industry.

In addition to prizes in each class, a Best of Show award – named for the late Chef Eugene Mattucci, a longtime Penn College Food Show judge and owner of Mattucci’s Italian Restaurant – will be presented.
