Hospitality management students host dinner with wine and food pairings – May 1

Three people toasting with glasses of read wine.The Hospitality Management program will host the Winemaster Dinner on May 1 featuring wine and cuisine of Argentina. The event is the final project for the Hospitality Management Catering and Culinary Techniques class. The RRM 415 students will be putting together the menu and catering the event to fundraise for a student trip to the National Restaurant Association Show and Conference in Chicago in late May.

The dinner will be held from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Aspen Grille. A meet and greet in the University Club Lounge kicks off the evening, and the meal will begin at about 6:30 p.m. Please RSVP no later than Tuesday, April 24. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here.

The multi-course meal will focus on interesting and lesser known wines from Argentina, including sparkling wines, with an assortment of Argentinian cuisine. The class is currently finalizing the menu, which may include a grilled provolone appetizer, a roasted hog leg carved in the dining room, and dulce de leche flan (menu is subject to supplier availability).

The 2018 Winemaster Dinner offers students a chance to put together skills learned in the class ranging from knife skills to timing a multi-course meal, similar to what they would experience in a real-world job. This event provides students with the opportunity to learn about the scope and nature of their profession as they prepare to enter their careers.

The Hospitality Management program is part of the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition in CSU’s College of Health and Human Sciences.
