Parkhurst Traveling Chefs Prepare Foods from Lebanon, Cuba, Vietnam and Thailand

Parkhurst Dining’s guests experience and learn more about global cuisine during Traveling Chefs, a Parkhurst Dining Services promotion where chefs prepare healthy and fresh foods to order and in front of guests using authentic ingredients and food preparation techniques indicative of Lebanon, Cuba, Vietnam and Thailand.  

Traveling Chefs is a unique promotion that touts the culinary talents of several chefs from Parkhurst Dining who travel to prepare healthy and delicious foods from around the world. Chefs provide a culinary “education”as they describe the fresh ingredients and local agriculture used to prepare the selections, and will also make recommendations if guests ask for complimentary flavors.

FEATURED RECIPES

  • Bistec a la Plancha with Papas Aplastadas (Seared Beef Steak with Crushed Potatoes)
  • Bun Chay (Rice Noodles with Stir-Fried Vegetables)
  • Chicken Shawarma
  • Curried Shrimp in Coconut Milk

TRAVELING CHEFS HIGHLIGHTS...

  • Unique Dining Experience: Traveling Chefs showcase the farm-fresh food and exceptional service Parkhurst Dining provides through a unique dining experience. Some of the featured foods are from the Parkhurst Dining’s Hemisflavors, a collection with over 500 global cuisine recipes.
  • Culinary Education: Traveling Chefs provide a culinary "education”where Traveling Chefs will talk to guests about the ingredients they use (indicative of the featured countries), dining culture and authentic preparation techniques. 
  • College/Team Rivalry: Traveling Chefs create rivalry between our culinary teams as well as students. For example, Parkhurst Dining serves colleges that are in the same conference -- this creates a “friendly”competition.
  • Career Opportunities for Chefs: Traveling Chefs features our young and developing managers, sous chefs and hourly chefs. Our goal is to help promote these young "stars" into executive chef positions. 
  • Tools to Succeed:  The success of Traveling Chefs is based on a consistent format. Parkhurst Dining provides the tools, recipes and marketing for our operators to easily execute this exciting promotion. Plus, recipes change yearly, so it keeps Traveling Chefs "fresh".

Students never have to leave their office or college campus to experience fresh, global cuisine. Plus, Traveling Chefs gives our team members an opportunity to work and learn from each other.
