Food University at Caesars Palace – Las Vegas
Are you a creative cook with the makings of becoming a chef but you lack the experience, or maybe you just need a little training; regardless, before entering the world as a professional cook you need both experience and education. Here is the answer to your problem, and who knows, you could end up being a future “Top Chef” star.
Food University is offering a new inaugural class scheduled for March 27-29, 2013 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Join the fun-loving foodies from across the country and in just 72 hours you may go from a cook wannabe to a competition-ready chef.
The Food University classes range in topics from wine and cheese pairing to classic Italian to mixology will be offered. Every essential cooking technique from knife skills to Mastering Beef to Seafood 101 and beyond will be covered, plus you will be given a private VIP behind-the-scenes tour of the brand new Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace, as well as the Southern Wine and Spirits Hospitality Mixology program with Mixologist Francesco LaFranconi, usually available only to hotel and restaurant executives.
Among those attending will be philanthropist and hospitality industry leader Larry Ruvo, Food Network co-founder Robin Leach and veteran culinary entertainment producer Richard Gore. Also in attendance will be high-profile chefs along with Food University’s culinary faculty. Other special guest appearances will be named in coming weeks. The prestigious hospitality school from the University of Nevada Las Vegas will provide student volunteers to assist with preparations for this event.
This festive event will accommodate up to 80 culinary scholars in what will be Food U’s first graduating class. Each student will receive the Food University “Enlightened Palate” diploma, and if you enroll in the first classes, you will receive a private VIP invitation to tour some of Napa Valley’s never-before-seen prominent wineries.
Tuition is $1,995 per person for the three day sessions which includes all food, beverages, and course instruction. For more information visit www.FoodUniversityLasVegas.com
Proceeds from Food University “admissions” will go to Keep Memory Alive, committed to finding cures for brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and ALS.
