Doug Fee Stars on WZBN TV
Associate Professor Doug Fee, coordinator of the HRIM and culinary programs, was the star of a WZBN TV news story about MCCC's noncredit culinary programs, filmed in the MCCC kitchen on Jan. 11. The video features Fee preparing home-made pasta with shrimp, assisted on camera by student Margaret DeGennaro, who now teaches cooking for Camp College and assists with other classes.
Fee said, "We offer noncredit classes for those who don't want to do this for a living, but want to learn how to cook. We offer cuisine from different parts of the world. Our Italian teacher lives for several months of the year in Italy." More here.
