The University of New Hampshire will host the “Taste of the Twenties” gourmet dinner this November, a dinner inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.”
Hosted by the Advanced Food and Beverage class in the Department of Hospitality Management.
A UNH tradition, the gourmet dinner is an opportunity for hospitality management students to apply fundamentals learned through classes in the program and gain real-world, hands-on experience. Students are responsible for planning and preparing the menu, selling and marketing the event, managing finances, and creating an enjoyable night for attendees.
The menu includes passed hors d’oeuvres of pecorino and mint-stuffed mushroom, truffle deviled eggs, smoked salmon crostini, lamb meatball with lemon cumin yogurt, and falafel with cucumber salsa and tahini sauce; classic Waldorf salad; fig ravioli and scallop with a sage cream sauce; champagne oyster shooter; beef Wellington, fingerling potatoes, and wilted winter greens; and a trio of sweet cupcakes for dessert.
For the first time, the gourmet dinner will have guest bakers. Jessica Conlon and Tiana Antequera, owners of Random Acts of Sweetness of Portsmouth, will join the UNH students for the evening.
