(Wednesday, September 28, 2011) Chester, Pa. - Students from the School of Hospitality Management are serving up a delicious experience this fall at Widener University, as part of the 2011 Fall Dinner Series. Throughout the semester, members of the public are invited to experience exquisite dining and vibrant flavors from around the world in a casual, yet refined, atmosphere.

The Widener dinner series gives students the opportunity to learn all aspects of fine dining as they operate their own restaurant as chefs, servers, bartenders and managers. Each week, the students are assigned a theme and are given the sole responsibility of researching recipes, calculating production costs and managing staff.

Served in the J. Willard & Alice S. Marriott Dining Room on the Main Campus of Widener University in Chester, the four-course dinners are prepared on select Wednesday evenings from 5:30-8 p.m. Prices range from $16-$23 and reservations are required. The fall 2011 menus include:

Date - Theme

October 12 - Traditional Central American Cuisine
October 26 – America’s Plains
November 2 - A Greek and Lebanese Sampler
November 9 - A Thai Sampler
November 16 - A Taste of Philadelphia
November 30 - A Roman Festival
December 7 - A Hawaiian Holiday
