Chain, Chain, Chaine — Stratford University’s Chaine Kitchen Opens

It was a festive evening for all who attended the chain-cutting ceremony and dinner at the Chaine Kitchen at Stratford University’s Baltimore Campus. Three years ago, Raimund Hofmeister, CMC and the University’s Director of the School of Culinary Arts and Hospitality, envisioned a viable, working kitchen for extension cooking classes for the hobby cooks, food enthusiasts, gourmands, and for professional development.
The world’s oldest gourmet club, Chaine des Rotisseurs, became the sponsor, helping to create the space for future culinary competitions and training. Equipment was pulled from storage at other Stratford University campuses, refreshed, and fixed to complete the 20-person working kitchen. The Stratford extension cooking classes are on the horizon, as are many other uses of the Chaine Kitchen. This will not be the only Chaine Kitchen for Stratford University. There will be more to come at its other campuses.
