School of Hospitality Visitors

School of Hospitality students and faculty benefited from visits by culinary experts who shared their knowledge during classes and special events. Klaus Wahl, professor of viticulture at the Technical University of Munich in Germany, and an internationally recognized expert in the field, spoke to several hospitality management classes and provided a professional development opportunity for the staff of Le Jeune Chef Restaurant. His visit culminated Wednesday evening, Oct. 7, with “A German Food and Wine Tasting,” a fund-raising event during which he shared his expertise with diners as they sampled German wine paired with elegant food courses prepared by School of Hospitality students and faculty. Also visiting were Genaro Gonzalez, creative services specialist for the California Raisin Marketing Board, and Dominique Homo, owner of L’Ecole du Pain (The School of Bread) in Quebec. Homo spent Wednesday morning with baking and pastry arts classes, teaching them artisanal raisin bread-making recipes. In preparation for the visit, 16 students developed their own raisin-bread recipes for a contest sponsored by the marketing board. Products were judged and winners were announced that afternoon.
