UNH invites those wanting to spice up their winter dining experience to
the “Paraiso Mexicano” Gourmet Dinner Friday, March 2 and Saturday,
March 3, 2007.
Sponsored by the Department of Hospitality Management at WSBE—the
nation’s second-oldest hospitality management program -- the Gourmet
Dinner allows students to put their classroom and on-the-job knowledge
and skills to a very public test. It is considered a capstone event for
“Everything pertaining to these dinners is done by students. By
organizing these dinners we are experiencing what it takes to put together
an event and dealing with the consequences or triumphs of the failures
and successes of an extremely demanding industry,” said Ashley Cakounes,
chief of marketing for the 2007 Gourmet Dinner.
The six-course dinner begin at 7 p.m. in the great room of Huddleston
Hall. A cocktail reception prior to the dinner kicks off at 6 p.m. Tickets
can be purchased at the MUB ticket office at 2-2290 or online.
In April, the students will host another set of dinners and celebrate
the naming of the UNH Hotelier of the Year. Instituted last year, the Hotelier
of the Year award honors outstanding achievements in and contributions
to the hospitality management industry. Tom Walsh, founder of Ocean Properties
Ltd., was the first recipient of the award.
