It takes a lot more than a finely tuned palate and a flashy smile to succeed in the restaurant business. Culinary students at Quincy High School learned this firsthand Oct. 28 when Longboards Bar & Grill executive chef Sean Conry and front-of-the-house manager Ashley Freschi stopped by the school to give a lesson on what restaurant work truly requires.
The two restaurant professionals covered a range of topics including professionalism, teamwork, workplace communication and leadership skills.
Quincy High School was one of 30 schools in the state to receive instruction that day as part of a program headed by the California Restaurant Association Education Foundation. The foundation called the statewide event Force in Training Day. Add a comment
