March 2018 Education Program

March 6 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

$20 – $45

Presented by Dr. Jean Hertzman

For ​most ​events, ​guests ​select ​the ​food ​first. ​How ​do ​you ​then ​pair ​the ​appropriate ​wines ​to ​elevate ​the ​guest ​experience? ​This ​presentation ​will ​discuss ​the ​basics ​of ​food ​and ​wine ​pairing. ​It ​will ​provide ​resources ​for ​selecting ​appropriate ​wines ​to ​match ​foods ​and ​tips ​for ​developing ​catering ​beverage ​lists ​appropriate ​for ​a ​wide ​variety ​of ​clientele ​and ​occasions.

And ​we’re ​in ​for ​a ​special ​treat. ​The ​students ​from ​HRTM ​363 ​Quantity ​Food ​Production ​and ​Service ​class, ​under ​the ​supervision ​of ​Chef ​John ​Hartley, ​will ​be ​preparing ​and ​serving ​the ​lunch ​during ​the ​presentation. ​All ​of ​them ​are ​studying ​for ​their ​Bachelor ​of ​Science ​in ​HRTM. ​

Visit Las Cruces is providing transportation from Albuquerque to Las Cruces (and the return trip). During our ride from Albuquerque to Las Cruces, Sally Lane will be giving tips on how to keep a group engaged as they travel from point A to point B. This presentation will share activities for any size group as you transport them from one place to another and we will experience engaging activities that can be used for any group. We will also learn how to choose the right activities to match your program goals.
If you are taking the bus, please meet in the NORTH parking lot of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Albuquerque Hotel & Spa (1000 Woodward Place). The bus will leave promptly at 8:00 am and will return after the program and venue tours (leaving Las Cruces around 2:00 pm).
