Dietetics students to host themed dinners for Cornell community

Dietetics students from the College of Human Ecology will host two themed dinners on Tuesday, April 25, from 5-9 p.m. in Cook House Dining Room and 5-8 p.m. in Keeton House Dining Room on Cornell’s West Campus. The dinners are part of the capstone course NS4880: Applied Dietetics in Food Service Systems, which simulates the experience of operating and managing a foodservice program.

“Students work alongside chefs from Cornell Dining throughout the semester and are charged with coming up with a theme, developing a menu, coordinating entertainment and decorations, marketing, directing the budget and much more… all to pull off this event,” says Emily Gier, associate professor of practice in the Division of Nutritional Sciences. “We’re really excited to make the evening something special for the residents of Keeton and Cook House and the entire Cornell community.”
