Annual ProStart Teacher Roundtable
September 2015 issue, Michigan Restaurant Association publication
The annual back to school ProStart Teacher Roundtable, a program designed to enhance the knowledge of ProStart educators, was held August 17-18, 2015 in Grand Rapids. The event kicked off at Gordon Food Service with a “trend presentation,” a Michigan Department of Education update. Day one concluded with a tour of Michigan-grown fruit and vegetable fields and packaging facilities.
Day two was hosted by the Secchia Insitute of Culinary Education. ProStart educators worked with the Insitutes’s professors on a number of skills. Educators rotated through sessions which included modern plating, bake shop, and then prepared lunch for the Michigan Restaurant Association Educational Support Foundation’s Trustee Board (MRA ESF).
