Culinary Nutrition student Amy Peralta ’19 was selected to work with the Boston Bruins’ executive chef to prepare a pre-workout breakfast and post-workout lunch for players and staff at Warriors Arena, the Boston Bruins’ practice facility. This is an opportunity made possible through the university’s education partnership with TD Garden and the Boston Bruins.

JWU Denver Creates World’s Longest Vegan PB&J
On April 2, in honor of National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, JWU Denver Culinary Nutrition students collaborated with Southmoor Elementary, under the guidance of JWU Chef Adam Sacks, to build the World’s Longest Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich, a record submitted for an entry in Guinness World Records. The final length came in at 108 feet—over 875 pounds of student-made vegan bread, peanut butter and jelly. The students spent three months baking the vegan bread from scratch and ingredients (made from beans, grain and fresh fruit) as a part of their end-of-term class project for their vegetarian cuisine course.
