The new group of students just completed their first 180° fine dining event this past Friday. The menu featured the food of Fruili which is in the northeastern portion of Italy bordering Austria and Slovenia. This is hearty mountain fare with hints of the spices used in Venetian cooking.
The students performed well for their first dinner and I am sure they will excel on the next dinner which will be a French Christmas celebration on December 10.
