THE BIG CHEESE… After a semester of planning and using The Cheesy Vegan as part of their curriculum, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Hospitality Management Program students hosted THE BIG CHEESE event on November 19, serving several of my Cheesy Vegan recipes to a packed room. The event served as a fundraiser for the Hospitality Management Program, and was the first major event hosted by the program.

The students created every aspect of this special event–logistics, room design, recipe selection, food prep, set-up, hosting, serving, etc.–from the ground up. They showed that they can run with the best of them in the Hospitality world.

As an educator, writer, and activist for a more compassionate world, watching these students work on this semester-long project made my heart SING! The world skipped ahead a little further in a positive direction thanks to all of them!!! +++++

Here are a few scenes from the evening…
