Students find good ideas, some help
Fully two-thirds of this year’s C-CAP Arizona scholarship winners took time as summer began to sit down and plan for their new roles as professional culinary students.
This year, College 101 presented a full day program, giving students real-world advice and assistance and covering everything from dollars to sense.
Presenters included executive management consultant Larry Levinson as the day’s coordinator, former C-CAP scholarship winner, executive chef and restaurant partner Jared Porter, food writer Nikki Buchanan and Wells Fargo Bank executive Pam Kolb. Culinary professionals who presented varied perspectives included Chef Glenn Humphrey, Arizona Culinary Institute, Chef Beau MacMillan of The Sanctuary, Chef Matt Carter of Zinc Bistro and The Mission, and James Zemlock of The Capital Grille.
Several 2010 C-CAP alumni were also on hand, giving an insider’s view from their own recent experiences.
