North Central NAMA Gathers for Culinary Experience

Written by NAMA on Friday, May 31, 2013 , 7:04 am
North Central NAMA members gathered May 20 for a unique culinary experience in Minneapolis’ Midtown Global Market. The event kicked off with a champagne cocktail and a local cheese tasting course.  Then the group was split into six teams and given assignments for their portion of the dinner menu.This, of course, necessitated a shopping trip in the market visiting various ethnic grocery vendors to purchase the needed ingredients.  Once the ingredients were purchased, the teams donned aprons and set about creating their masterpieces, on the fly, and with guidance from “Kitchen in the Market” staff.  The six dishes were all deemed a success and were enjoyed as a family-style dinner afterwards.  It proved a great opportunity to learn about and use fresh, local, in-season products, along with a wonderful opportunity to network with each other.  The group, as a whole, decided this should be a repeat in the chapter’s programming next year.

The University of Minnesota student NAMA chapter was applauded for their first place win in the NAMA marketing competition in April.  A plaque recognizing their win was shown to the group.  In addition, Cheri Johnson, Weber Shandwick, and Melissa Norby, The Lacek Group, both won gift cards recognizing their efforts for the North Central chapter’s membership drive.
