It's May! Mother's Day! Gradua-...okay, we know graduation may look different for your peers this time around. But here's one for the 'good different’ category: just this week one of our Madrid alums graduated from Harvard and was featured on John Krasinski's series “Some Good News.” She received a "congrats" directly from Oprah (and no, Oprah wasn't giving them to everyone)!

Other good news: you don’t have to graduate from culinary school to engage in one of our favorite stay-at-home activities…COOKING [eating]! No banana bread recipes here, but we do have an entire list of student blogs dedicated to food and five ways to say "tasty", plus some cooking lessons and study abroad food tips!

“I was able to take a course about the history of Italian cuisine, which sparked my interest in global food study, sustainability, and the Slow Food movement.

As a result I have now applied to do a Masters program in gastronomic studies in Italy and in the future, I plan to work in the food and beverage industry.”
