The Robert C. Wood Chef-in-Residence program was established by the Wood Company (now Sodexo Wood) in 2000 to give culinary students the opportunity to work side-by-side with chefs from some of the region’s top restaurants. While on campus, the chefs also share some of their favorite recipes with the public during a cooking demonstration and special dinners.  Proceeds from the demonstration will benefit the Hotel, Restaurant and Culinary Arts Endowment Fund at NCC.
