The inaugural Food University kicks off
LAS VEGAS-At this week's inaugural Food University event at Caesar's Palace, Swiss Diamond cookware will be the exclusive cookware used by students as they take hands-on cooking classes led by such celebrity chefs as Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman, pastry chef Francois Payard, Italian cooking expert Frank Pellegrino Jr., and Hell's Kitchen: Season 10 winner Christina Wilson.
Food University is a three-day "foodie fantasy camp," co-hosted by Food Network co-founder Robin Leach and TV personality Claudine Pepin (daughter of Jacques). Besides taking classes such as "Secret Sauces" and "Gourmet Vegetables," students also partake of in-depth seminars on mixology and wine pairing, behind-the-scenes field trips to some of the city's finest restaurants, and even a competition on graduation day. The photo shows, in the center, starting ninth from the left, entertainment producer Richard Gore, Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner, Food Network Co-Founder Robin Leach and Cleveland Clinic's Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health Chairman Dr. Jeffrey L. Cummings, flanked by the chefs. Proceeds benefit Keep Memory Alive, dedicated to finding cures for brain disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and ALS.
