Hotel Management School Logo Lecturer Gastronomy

Your inspiration to, and your guidance of our students in their gastronomic journey,
now and in the future?
Totally at home at Zuyd – Hotel Management School Maastricht.

The world of gastronomy is in constant movement. More than ever, consumers are aware of their food consumption and its effects on their physical and mental health. Moreover, food is seen as experience instead of a mere consumption good. For our students to be of significance in the future of gastronomy, you as lecturer play an important role. To inspire our students to develop themselves within this special field of expertise and to look further than the current status quo. To use your knowledge and experience, and to guide our upcoming young professionals through the current state of gastronomy. To challenge them to shape the future of the Food & Beverage industry. Hostmanship is at the hearth of everything that you do.
