This month, the news magazine show about CUNY looks at cuisine throughout and beyond CUNY. Tinabeth Pina anchors the show at the City Tech hospitality management program, where our guides, Susan Lifreiri-Lowry and Joanne Jacus, walk us through some cooking demos. Kristen Battaglia, a City Tech student, enters the first ever U.S. Student Pastry Competition, and how do you think she did? After this, we’ll follow chef and restauranteur Michael Lomonaco at his world-renowned restaurant Porter House New York in the Time Warner Center. We will watch up and coming chef Kubee Kassaye, who migrated here from Ethiopia and has made quite a name for herself in New York restaurants. The Spoons Across America program will teach young children about bees and honey. And finally, we profile one of the few sake samurais in the world, Roger Dagorn. Don’t know what that is? Watch to find out!
