Christian WISE (Wisconsin, USA) - 2011 graduate

General Manager and Executive Chef, responsible for the complete food operations at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, USA

« My team of 400 prepares approximately 10,000 meals per day for 32 weeks a year. I love food and understanding how food relates to humanity on every level is highly interesting to me.

Upon first sight, Hautes Etudes du Goût, of all the programs I reviewed, offered the widest variety of coursework and the highest caliber of faculty. I work, full-time, and I needed and intense, condensed program. HEG is an intense, condensed program, but, in addition, after completing the coursework, I can also say that it was one of the most thorough programs and exceeded my expectations beyond any preconceived notion. Quite honestly, my participation has helped mold me into a different and positive mind set, thus affecting my life in a great way.

For anyone that loves food, has an interest in humanity and wants an opportunity to learn a significant amount in a positive environment, I cannot say enough laudatory things about this program, except for, "you need to apply and do it."

In addition to the wonderful content, the program was extremely well organized between two institutions and two cities, a feat that was impressively executed. »
