Although our goal is to produce candies, students learn how they can be applied to plated dessert components. Packaging is an important focus in this class since marketing is a big sales winner.

Thomas Ahrens International Work/Study Programs—-Paris

Selected Hospitality Management students take part in an exchange program with students from Universite d’Evry during the month of June. This project presents first hand, the business of tourism, hotel management, cuisine and culture to our hospitality students at City Tech. During these 3 weeks our students are based in Paris and have had visits and conferences that included the Hotel de Ville, Rungis Market, Hotel George V, Patisserie Lenotre, Moet et Chandon in Champagne, Restaurant Le Grand Colbert, La Coupole and Le Vefour. Culture is investigated through the everyday experiences of living in Paris. Cuisine is formerly practiced in several culinary schools and informally experienced through day to day market shopping, tastings and restaurant dining. Each year students work on various walking tour assignments and have presented historic and cultural tours of various sites in Paris.
