Students Serve Up Their Final Exam
Chef/Instructor Bill Beyer and his students provided a four-course international culinary experience to invited guests including area chefs as part of the final exam for their Advanced Culinary course. Beyer has been a chef for 35 years, and said he has one regret: “I wish I was a farmer first.” He said the best learning experience for a chef would be to work on a farm for a few days to get a true appreciation for foods and their origin.
