'Cooking with passion' - interactive cooking class, Induction Ceremony, and scholarship luncheon
" The delightful day proved educational and entertaining "
A culinary adventure awaited us at Johnson & Wales University, College of Culinary Arts, Miami; an interactive cooking with passion class, an Induction Ceremony and a scholarship luncheon.
The early birds gathered in the kitchen to don aprons and toques as Chef Instructor Jim Flader reviewed kitchen safety and the day’s menu. Members partnered with student volunteers to sauté, chop, braise and simmer before retiring to the dining room. Table decor reflected autumnal colours. Gifts of balsamic vinegar sat at each place setting.

Bailli Nancy Radlauer presented Bruce Ozga, Dean of JWU College of Culinary Arts, with a scholarship donation of $3,500. Miami Chaîne’s Chefs of the Future Scholarship fund was created years ago to raise monies for culinary students of Johnson and Wales, College of Culinary Arts. She shared the Chaîne Foundation’s goals and thanked everyone for their continued support of Greater Miami’s Chef of the Future Scholarship Fund.
