Universities for Food Lovers
From prize vineyards to massive crawfish boils, colleges across the country are luring students with food- and wine-centric courses, programs and perks.
In 2011, seniors at the Saunders School of Hotel & Restaurant Management in Massachusetts opened a public pop-up restaurant as their final project. The menu included culinary takes on college favorites like hot pockets filled with wild mushrooms and truffles, ramen noodles topped with scallops, mussels and clams, and a cereal-infused panna cotta. Though this was the first pop up, Newbury undergrads are not new to hands-on restaurant management: the Lois and David Weltman Dining Room (left) serves as a practice space for students who prepare and serve meals. newbury.edu
