Students in the USF Sarasota-Manatee College of Hospitality and Technology Leadership recently got the kind of ‘on the job’ training that most would-be chefs dream about, as they took over the kitchen of Michael’s on East for the HospitaBull event. WUSF TV takes you inside the kitchen on University Beat.


It’s one of the University’s newest schools, and the College of Hospitality and Technology Leadership at USF Sarasota-Manatee is quickly becoming a success. That’s thanks to energetic leadership, talented students and generous donors. The three groups came together at the recent HospitaBull event, where guests dined on a meal planned for and prepared by the students, who worked in the kitchen of a well-known Sarasota restaurant. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes us there.
