A Reason to Taste was an evening inspired by the sights and splendors of the City of Lights. Ivy Tech’s hospitality students served their culinary masterpieces complete with wine pairings. C’est magnifique!
The planning for A Reason to Taste starts months in advance, and the first step is the Mystery Basket Competition. Learn how hospitality administration students compete and are chosen to study in Europe.
Bryce Verfaillie, a hospitality administration student, was one of the winners to study culinary arts in France. Learn how your donations help students’ dreams, like Bryce’s, come true.
