Feature Story

Photos of the Week

The first two sessions of Chef's Choice summer culinary camps brought both kids and teens to the JWU Providence Campus to sharpen their cooking skills, explore global cuisines and cook and bake like a pro. The third and final session is taking place this week, August 5-9.

Human Resources & Payroll’s inaugural Lunch & Learn session was a hit! Held on July 30 in the Pimentel Board Room, staff from around the university came together to meet new people, enjoy lunch, and learn about two of JWU’s many available resources: Lynda.com and the Coastline Employee Assistance Program. See Working at JWU for details about the next topic.

The countdown is on to Kazan, Russia. That's where the 45th International WorldSkills Competition takes place beginning August 22. JWU student Daylan Torres ’20 is pumped to represent the U.S. in the bakery competition. He was the lead story in the recent Providence Journal Food Notes column.

We've all tried to stretch a meal, especially hamburgers at this time of year. Same with the tips that Todd Seyfarth '01, RD, CSSD, associate professor and department chair, Nutrition and Applied Dietetics, has for making those burgers healthier. KOMONews of Seattle tracked him down. Read the companion blog and take a listen to the interview.

WTOP radio, Washington, DC, came across recent interviews in US News & World Report with College of Hospitality Management Professors Paul Bagdan and Brian Warrener, who have become the go-to experts for anything related to tipping in the service industry. Noting DoorDash's controversial tipping policy, WTOP wanted answers for its listeners. Take a listen to Bagdan's interview and read WTOP's companion website story.

The Culinary Museum, a resource for the JWU community, is also a goldmine for writers, researchers, historians, and foodies. Shana Klein, assistant professor, Kent State University, has published an article about the groundbreaking canning machine known as the Ginaca that profoundly advanced the pineapple canning process. She includes an image of a 1928 Dole Hawaiian Pineapple Company advertisement obtained from the museum. See the nearly 90-year-old ad in Food, Fatness and Fitness.
