Chef Fraser Instructs Students in Culture, Food, and Spirits
Chef James Fraser has spent many years teaching Resort & Hospitality (RHM) students to plan menus and events through required coursework in food and beverage management. As the RHM program has transformed into a reinvigorated curriculum in Resort & Hospitality Administration (RHA), Lutgert’s popular chef has added a new course to his personal menu:
HFT 4894C Culture, Food and Spirits
Though offered as part of a new food and beverage concentration in the RHA degree curriculum, Culture, Food and Spirits is open to all FGCU undergraduate majors. In addition to gaining hands-on experience making beer and wine, cured meats and cheese, students learn about regional artisanal food culture, gastronomic entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, fair trade, food deserts and tourism centered on food, among other topics.
It’s very cross-disciplinary. It’s hospitality, it’s entrepreneurship, agribusiness, science, marketing, sustainability, and ethics.
