The cutting edge venue at the dining halls is the Xhibition Kitchen located in Stetson West Eatery. A variety of programs are hosted in this innovative kitchen which include chef demonstrations, cooking classes, book signings and interactive display cooking.
Live, Learn, Eat.
This is the mantra of the Xhibition Kitchen which is located in Stetson West Eatery. This venue fosters an environment to strengthen culinary art skills, broaden the knowledge of food and diversify the palate.
The Xhibition Kitchen is a state of the art exhibition kitchen complete with overhead cameras that project onto flat screen televisions, induction stove tops, yellow granite counters and round top tables for classroom style seating.
The program continues to grow in popularity both within and outside the university community and it continues to exceed expectations. This space is programmed twice per week. A variety of programs are hosted in this innovative kitchen including chef demonstrations, cooking classes, book signings and interactive cooking displays. This space has provided Northeastern students, faculty and staff the opportunity to get up close and personal with James Beard award winning chefs, cookbook authors and restaurant chefs. The Food Network program Throwdown with Bobby Flay filmed a segment of their episode featuring The Brass Sisters in the XK.
Dining Services has hosted close to fifty authors in this demonstration kitchen. There is a complete library of signed books from all of the authors! Numerous authors are booked in collaboration with Barnes & Noble and the Northeastern bookstore. World-renowned Master Chef Jacques Pepin, Certified Master Chef Martin Yan, and best-selling author Frances Mayes have all cooked for us in the Xhibition Kitchen. In addition, James Beard Award nominees and winners, including Ming Tsai, Joanne Chang, Tony Maws, Joe Yonan, Melissa Clark, and Paula Wolfert have all spiced up the XK.
The authors and chefs are invited to the XK and we provide them with all the mise en place for their demonstration including samples of the recipes for all of the audience to taste during the presentation.
The food inspired programming possibilities are endless. Dining Services collaborates with NU Athletics and University Health & Counseling to initiate a series of healthy cooking demonstrations tailored for each athletic team. Eating and cooking well balanced meals while away at college can be challenging for any student, especially athletes. These students are not only busy with their class schedules but are also training daily with their teams. Nutritious meals must be part of daily campus life! This customizable event called Nutritious U: Healthy Cooking, Healthy Eating, Healthy You. This is an interactive cooking demonstration where the team athletes come together for a meal in the Xhibition kitchen with our chefs and nutritionist complete with cooking tips, food safety and nutritional information presented by our culinary team. Each event is customized to a team’s unique dietary needs.
Interactive demos are programmed when we are not hosting a chef demonstration. These include chocolate fountains, decorate your own cupcakes, cheese tastings, sushi making, vendor days, cookie decorating, chocolate making, fondue fun, toast your own s’mores, stuff your own cannolis-just to mention a few.
