Nicholas Weidenbach brought back a little bit of Italy to his hospitality classes in CAST’s School of International Hospitality and Service Innovation this year. The fourth-year student received the Giacomo Bologna Scholarship and spent 10 days traveling, learning and cooking his way through the Le Marche region of the country. The scholarship is given to university students in culinary and hospitality programs by the Gruppo Ristoratori Italiani and the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation. Weidenbach and six other U.S. students visited restaurants, wineries and an olive oil mill in the countryside of Montefiore dell’Aso; made pasta with prominent local chefs; and attended educational seminars to learn about the cuisine of this part of the world.
