Le Jeune Chef Restaurant
Visiting Chef Series

Le Jeune Chef Visiting Chef

Since its inception in 1992, the Visiting Chef Series has become one of the most prestigious fine dining events in Pennsylvania. It attracts world-renowned chefs to the kitchens of Pennsylvania College of Technology and to the elegant campus restaurant, Le Jeune Chef.

Students have the unique privilege of working side-by-side with creative talents who have reached the pinnacle of their chosen field. It is a priceless opportunity for students, faculty, and restaurant staff to experience the best the culinary world has to offer.

The culmination of the chef's visit is a gala fundraising dinner prepared by the visiting chef, students and faculty, and serviced in Le Jeune Chef Restaurant. The evening's exclusive gourmet menu is complemented by fine wine flights to create a dinner experience that is unforgettable. Enthusiastic patrons reserve seats as much as a year in advance of the dinner, a testimony to the success of the series.

IN A TWIST ON THE TRADITIONAL VISITING CHEF DINNER, Pennsylvania College of Technology is pleased to host Visiting Sommelier Brian McClure. Originally from New York State, Brian began his love of wine while training and working as Sommelier at the Sagamore Resort in Lake George. After a decade of teaching history, Brian pursued his passion for the grape by traveling to every major growing region in the new and old worlds. He has since attained a Level 4 Diploma degree from WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) regarded as the world's leading provider of wine education. Brian next assumed the role of Wine Director at the Lake Placid Lodge, a Relais & Chateau resort in his home region, overseeing an 8,000 bottle cellar and garnering the resort a Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence. Since 2013 he has served as the Wine Director, and later the Beverage Director, at the Greenbrier where he directs a $10 million program including thirteen different beverage outlets and four distinct wine lists in the fine dining outlets. Brian's selection of wines will accompany a multi-course dinner prepared by the culinary staff of Penn College's own Le Jeune Chef Resaturant.

Tickets: $75 per person. Tables of eight are available.

Payment requested at time of reservation.
