    Our vision goes beyond Meriden. As part of her international work and partnership, Chef Kashia was invited to accompany Italian Food Style Education Culinary Institute (IFSE) Chef Ugo Mura on a two weeks cooking program (20 sessions) at the Trinidad and Tobago Hospitality and Tourism Institute (TTHTI).  This short course was designed to promote and educated culinary arts students, with a focus on earning their Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree to participate in a three month Italian study abroad program through the partnership between TTHTI and IFSE, located in Turin, Italy.  This course was solely on teaching authentic Italian cuisine which included: wine, cheese, extra virgin olive oil, and learning about foods from different regions of Italy.

    Thanks to the Trinidad and Tobago Hospitality and Tourism Institute – Dr. Patricia Butcher, Ms. Michelle John, the entire staff and students for hosting us, the Italian Food Style Education Institute (IFSE Italy) and Chef Ugo Mura for an amazing experience.
