Rosen Hospitality School

April 8, 2014

Chef Jeff was invited to spend the day as one of the Judges for the final projects completed by the students in the Bachelors program for hospitality management.  Each student was required to take one foods class and for their final project they had to design a cafe/pub, write and price a menu, prepare a presentation featuring their establishment and explain their concept.  It was an honor to be a part of these bright minds entering the hospitality industry and we wish them all much success!
