Food For Thought - 8-17 Chef Mike Gasaway

Aug 17, 2018

We're talking Demonstration Kitchens, Production Kitchens, Theory Kitchens and how not every student that gets a job in the culinary field is working in a restaurant, today on Food For Thought. Chef Mike Gasaway from the WITCC Culinary Arts Program stops by to talk about the program which is going into it's 5th year at the college.

October 1 is International Coffee Day. Celebrations will begin at 12:00 a.m. and lightning bolt through the rest of the day. To kick things off, Siouxland Public Media's Mark Munger visited the Coffee Spot on the campus of Western Iowa Tech Community College, a fabulous haunt that brews Caturra Coffee, a locally roasted bean.

Like changing leaves and decorative gourds, the pumpkin spice latte has become a symbol of fall's commencement. Possibly it has become THE symbol. In the future we will complain that Starbucks has begun serving the libation before Labor Day, which will be a delightful complaint for those of us who enjoy such grumbling, and for those who want seasons to stay within their defined boundaries. Such a wish would make sense when stirred by what we call "pumpkin spice." 

Mara DeKat, coordinator of the Institute for Lifelong Learning at WITCC, makes her radio debut, today. She has taken up the mantle from Fiona Valentine, and she is doing a marvelous job, as evidenced by the ILL's summer 2015 catalog. Among the offerings is Russ Gifford's lecture series "Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Third American Revolution." Russ will begin the series with "The Rise of the New Deal," Wednesday, April 15.
