Tully Dining Hall was honored to have a special guest chef on Friday, Elizabeth Fisher. Ms. Fisher is the Chef Manager for Sodexo at The Webb School of Knoxville and brought a signature dish of ramen to our specialty line. Our students were able to choose from a variety of options to make their own ramen bowl including broth, meat, vegetables and an assortment of toppings.
Ms. Fisher grew up in India, moved to San Francisco when she was 18, and went to California Culinary Academy Le Cordon Bleu. Her culinary experiences include homeless shelters, boutique hotels, fine dining restaurants and hospitals.
The chef was welcomed by junior Julia Whitehorn ’19 who established the Lausanne Dining Committee as her International Baccalaureate (IB) Creativity Activity Service (CAS) project. The committee is made up of a group of juniors who meet once a month with Frank Supergan, the head of Lausanne Dining, to give feedback and wide-ranging suggestions for lunch options.
This was a wonderful opportunity for both our student body to experience a unique new dish in our dining hall and also a way for Julia and her committee to see their efforts come to fruition.
