It all started when...

The premier annual event in The School is Les Gourmets.  Founded as a student organization in 1951, students in Les Gourmets produced their first dinner in 1955.  Starting as a simple buffet and dinner dance, the event has since evolved into a formal (black-tie suggested), seven-course, world-class reception and dinner showcasing the talents of hundreds of student volunteers and all they have learned from their professors and work experiences.  Under the direction of Professor Allan Sherwin (BA '64) and with the guidance of other distinguished faculty members and guest chefs, the students work in all areas - management, sales, marketing, purchasing, finance, culinary management, bartending, and serving - creating a night to remember each spring for hundreds of proud parents, alumni, and faculty.
