Hospitality Management invites you to join us for our widely reputed Gourmet Dinners. The events will provide you the chance to share a glass of wine with old and new friends and eat beautiful food, all the while helping to support UNH hospitality management students.
New to the Gourmet Dinner tradition, we are hosting a barn dinner, to be held rain or shine at Woodman Farm in the beautiful and historic white post and beam barn. This gourmet dinner will be hosted in collaboration with the EcoGastronomy Dual Major, the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station and the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Major.
Attire is trendy casual and walking shoes without heels are highly recommended. Dress in layers as New England weather can quickly change. Prepare to relax, take in the scenery, take a farm tour if interested and share a night out with old friends and new. Expect high-end food in a dramatic, yet informal setting.

At multiple times during the academic year, Advanced Food and Beverage students majoring in Hospitality Management delight the University community with themed Gourmet Dinners. The Gourmet Dinners are an opportunity for students to apply fundamentals learned through classes in the program, and give the students real-world, hands-on experience. Students are responsible for all aspects of the event: planning and preparing the menu, selling and marketing the event, managing finances, and creating an enjoyable night for all who attend.
