Jenny Harris, A&S ’00, Executive chef of Tria, a wine cheese and beer café in Philadelphia, PA, spoke at Cornell April 7, 2010. Jenny tested her love for the culinary arts through on the job experiences and became an avid reader, soaking up college texts on the culinary arts, cheese making and business management to perfect her skills. Even as a romance studies major at Cornell University, Jenny knew she was destined to work with food. She pursued her passion at restaurants like the famous vegetarian Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, New York and the White Dog Café, in Philadelphia, PA, a restaurant known for its social conscience. Now, as Executive Chef at Tria, Jenny is passing on her knowledge to others. The event was co-sponsored by the Cheese club at Cornell and the SHA/CIA Alliance.
Jenny and Tria were highlighted in the Summer 09 issue of Culture.
