Culinary Students Participate in Mayor’s International Gala / Sister Cities Event

This is third year that Sullivan University’s National Center for Hospitality Studies (NCHS) has participated in the Annual Mayor’s International Gala – Sister Cities of Louisville. Held at the Muhammad Ali Center, it’s a stellar opportunity to promote Sullivan’s Culinary Arts program and the talent of its students. This event celebrates friendly relations and mutual understanding around the globe.

Louisville’s nine sister cities include:

  • Adapazari, Turkey
  • La Plata, Argentina
  • Montpellier, France
  • Jiujiang, China
  • Quito, Ecuador
  • Tamale, Ghana
  • Perm, Russia
  • Leeds, England
  • Mainz, Germany

Students from NCHS assisted in catering the event for approximately 400-500 guests and created their dishes on-site. Participants learned skills in small plate tasting, work planning, networking, and customer service. The students also celebrated the diversity of Louisville’s sister cities and prepared two versions of a traditional dish, which they researched and selected, for a scholarship competition.
