From Edible Capital District — Devon Mintzes, a senior Culinary Arts Management student at SUNY Cobleskill, loves to cook, but there’s one thing she enjoys more: the smile on people’s faces as they relish a great meal with good company.
That’s why she’s thrilled to help fellow SUNY Cobleskill students serve guests at this year’s Culinary Extravaganza, the college’s annual farm-to-table feast. This will be her second year at the Extravaganza, where students work side-by-side with top culinary talent from the Capital Region and beyond and SUNY Cobleskill Culinary Arts professors to turn local, seasonal ingredients into mouthwatering dishes.
“I love to see people’s expressions and see them enjoy themselves,” Mintzes said. “It’s incredible how many people go to support the students, and how many people come to participate and be part of this community.”
