On this episode of FM On Demand with Tara Fitzpatrick, we are catching up with SDSU’s Executive Chef Tiago Battastini, a longtime friend of FM who we happily ran into at this year’s UMass Chefs Conference. This conversation features a recap of how the UMass Chefs’ Conference played out this year for Battastini and his team, and the full-circle moment of attending this conference in a leadership role. We find out what’s been going on with that dining team at SDSU, including hyper-local campus farming, world flavors, new projects and how Battastini gets inspired by his crew every day. Also, we talked off-air about a very cool new concept at SDSU that draws on some very fascinating historical cuisine that’s not often explored, but college foodservice is actually an ideal place to execute it. Intrigued? We are too! Stay tuned for FM’s next issue of our new digizine for more on that hint!
