Apprentice at Chef
professor to report on apprenticeship with chef/television personality
Jeanna Haggard, assistant professor of food and nutrition, will present the Colloquium, “Apprentice at Chef and the Farmer,” at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, in Centennial Hall’s Stutzman Lecture Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
During the presentation, Haggard will share about her apprenticeship with celebrity chef Vivian Howard, owner of Chef and the Farmer in Kinston, N.C., and star of the PBS show “A Chef’s Life.”
During the apprenticeship, Haggard learned about the farm-to-table concept of dining through experiences at both the restaurant and the farm where the produce is sourced. Partially funded by a Bluffton University Research Center grant, lessons from the experience are being used in Haggard’s classes and through the Nov. 15 Harvest Dinner, run by Bluffton nutrition and dietetics students.
