This event is the result of a unique collaboration between IU Dining, IU Catering, and Professor Brandon Howell’s Food and Beverage Class (SPH T302). The experience allows students to transfer classroom learning to a working environment where they encounter the operational and organizational constraints of a large food service operation.

Throughout this project, students have worked alongside managers, chefs, nutritionists, and marketers to present this very special evening. We hope you enjoy “A Taste of Italy!
