Foodie Fridays Start With a Bang!

Summer Series 2016 is chock full of workshops, tastings, events, and dinners.  The summer's first Foodie Friday, Foods & Wines of France, was a huge success.  This wine "playing" dinner brought together students, wine enthusiasts, and professionals to celebrate all that France has to offer with a knock-out menu from our Award-Winning Resident Chef, Danae McLaughlin, and wine pairings by Master Sommelier David Glancy.
