It is spring! That means there are new cuisines to enjoy at the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management. In previous posts I have raved about the School of Hospitality Management. Before I begin this post, if you haven’t had a chance to check out the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management…it is a Denver must!!!!! On Wednesday, May 15, 2013 the school will be welcoming chef Aaron Woo, Sunset Magazine’s Best Chef of the West, and Chef and Owner of Natural Selection in Portland, Oregon. This dinner appeals to me in many ways. First, we lived in Portland, Oregon (http://ouryearinportland.wordpress.com/)for a year and I loved it. Next, the cuisine will be vegetarian. If I have a choice, I prefer not to eat meat. So I am very excited about this vegetarian cuisine. Last, the School of Hospitality Management is phenomenal. I sing their praises as often and as much as I can. If I could dine at the School nightly, I would.
Aaron Woo is a graduate of the California Culinary Academy who has worked in such notable San Francisco kitchens as Absinthe Brasserie, La Folie, Stars, and as sous chef of PlumpJack Cafe under Chef Keith Luce. In Telluride, Colorado Aaron worked as Executive Chef at 9545 and Chef de Cuisine at The CosmopolitanRestaurant. Upon moving to Portland he worked with Morgan Brownlow and Jason French at ClarkLewis.
The dinner will include a wine pairing and is $70.00 per person. Cocktails start at 6:00 pm and dinner is at 7:00 pm. The dinner will be held at the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management Joy Burns Center, 2044 East Evans Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80210.
