Visiting Chef Dinner Features Alumni Chefs
Five School of Hospitality alumni returned to Pennsylvania College of Technology’s campus, including newly remodeled Le Jeune Chef restaurant, Feb. 4-5 to help celebrate 20 years of its Visiting Chef Series. The series premiered in 1992 with a dinner featuring alumnus Richard Kimble, of the Waldorf Astoria, and during the ensuing 20 years, the Visiting Chef Series has hosted a diverse group of renowned chefs from across the nation, each passing on their unique perspectives and cooking styles as they lead students in the kitchen. This year’s alumni chefs carried on that tradition, bringing experience from award-winning Pennsylvania restaurants. The alumni visiting chefs were Dennis Eckrote, ’97, chef at Elizabeth’s: An American Bistro, in Lewisburg; Andrew Masciangelo, ’97, executive chef at Savona, in Gulph Mills; Errol Walters, ’04, executive chef at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club, in Hummels Wharf; Callie Chalmers, ’08, bakery manager for Weis Markets, in Danville; and Angela Zerfing, ’03, pastry chef at Savona.
