Bevier Cafe

I was interested in doing this while doing another project and realized this was not an ordinary cafe. Bevier Cafe allows their students to learn while also get experience in a restaurant. The people I met at Bevier Cafe and the people interviewed all were happy and willing to help so I thank them a lot for helping me showcase their amazing abilities.

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND SERVING THE U OF I PUBLIC FOR 51 YEARS- BEVIER CAFÉ ISN’T ANY ORDINARY EATERY… LET’S SEE WHAT THEY HAVE COOKING UP.

<TAKE PACKAGE>

<TRACK 1>

BEVIER CAFÉ IS A STUDENT RUN RESTAURANT AND IS A PART OF THE FOOD SCIENCE AND HUMAN NUTRITION, OR FSHN, DEPARTMENT.

NOT ONLY IS BEVIER CAFÉ A RESTAURANT, THEY ARE ALSO A LABORATORY… TEACHING STUDENTS HOW RESTUARANTS OPERATE WHILE KEEPING THE EDUCATIONAL VALUE.

JUNIOR AND BEVIER CAFÉ CHEF KATRINA COCO BELIVES THIS OPPORTUNITY IS GREAT TO SEE WHAT JOBS WILL BE LIKE IN THE FUTURE. (:24)

<TAKE SOT>

“THE BEST PART ABOUT WORKING IN BEVIER CAFÉ IS JUST LIKE BEING WITH A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO COOK AND WHO ALSO WANT TO DO THIS AS PART OF THEIR PROFESSION AFTER COLLEGE.” (.13)

<TRACK 2>

IN ORDER TO PREVENT MONOTONY BEVIER CAFÉ RELIES HEAVILY ON A THREE WEEK CYCLING MENU, REPEATING ABOUT THREE TIMES A SEMESTER.

WITH AN EMPHASIS ON COOKING WITH DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES AND VARIETIES OF FOOD THE CAFE USUALLY HAS A LINE THAT GOES OUT THE DOOR.

JUNIOR JENNY GULAS SAYS THE CHANGES KEEP HER COMING BACK. (:17)

<TAKE SOT>

“I’M ACTUALLY HERE LIKE EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’M IN THE CLASS AND THEN I COME AND I USUALLY EAT ON TUESDAYS AND THURSDAYS AND THEN I WORK HERE ON FRIDAYS.” (.08)

<TRACK 3>

AS A PART OF THE FSHN 340 COURSE STUDENTS ARE TRAINED DURING THE SEMESTER AT SIX DIFFERENT LAB STATIONS EACH EMPHASISED TO HELP THE STUDENTS IN THE FUTURE.

TEACHING ASSOCIATE JILL CRAFT ENOYS THE UNIQUENESS OF BEVIER CAFÉ, BUT SHE ALSO SEES THE DIFFICULTIES OF RUNNING A CLASSROOM AND RESTAURANT SIMULTANEOUSLY.  (:17)

<TAKE SOT>

“IT CAN BE CHALLENGING AT TIMES BECAUSE YOU ULTIMATELY NEED TO

KEEP THE EDUCATION ASPECT FRONT AND CENTER BUT THEN ALSO IT CAN BE CHALLENGING, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE WE ARE SERVING CUSTOMERS AND WE’RE A SELF-SUSTAINING LAB SO WE HAVE TO COVER ALL OF OUR COSTS.” (.13)

<TRACK 4>

BEVIER CAFÉ LOOKS TO CONTINUE TO EDUCATE IT’S STUDENTS AND PREPARE THEM FOR THE BUSINESS AND CULINARY WORLD… WHILE ALSO PROVIDING THE COMMUNITY WITH A HOT HOME-COOKED MEAL AT A LOW PRICE. (:11)

<STEVEN ON CAM TAG>
