I had occasion this week to visit the Pastry Center at Munroe College, New Rochelle.. I was impressed! The Culinary Arts Program recently entered various cakes in the 144th Société Culinaire Philanthropique – held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center – and some students won!
The event was held in conjunction with the 97th International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show and students were awarded the Gold Medal of the Culinary Art of the Société Culinaire Philanthropique and and the Diploma of the Club Prosper Salon of Montagné. As you can see from the cakes (yes, cakes!) above, they were truly worthy of their awards.
It was also mentioned that there is a wine and food paring on Monday evenings at the college, and there was some discussion about opening that up to the public.
New Rochelle is GREAT!
