Students in the Bakery Operations & Product Development class hosted a trade show in Le Jeune Chef Restaurant on Friday, pulling together the skills they’ve learned throughout their baking & pastry arts coursework. In the class, taught by Chef Todd M. Keeley, assistant professor of baking and pastry/culinary, the students design a business, including marketing materials, sample menus and costing.
They also incorporated skills from the Information, Technology & Society course to include digital displays in their trade show “booths” – plus, of course, product samples and a heaping helping of customer interaction. Most of the students are in their final semester of baking & pastry arts coursework.
