Chicago-style pizza, Oreo cheesecake cookies, pasta e fagioli and mature graphic design—the 5th annual Taste of StMU launch party provided plenty in which to indulge.

Over the course of the fall semester, students in Brother Dennis Bautista’s graphic design class donned the hat of Editor-in-Chief and scrambled to design, produce and publish their own cooking magazines for the Friday, Nov. 21 launch party in UC A.

Professional volunteer judges selected Mariajose Romero (see magazine) as the winner of the “Professionals’ Choice” award. Their respective “chefs” also received aprons imprinted with the Taste of StMU logo. The some 50 alumni, faculty, staff and Marianists who attended this unique event voted Kyra Littlejohn (see magazine) as the winner of the “People’s Choice” awards.

The magazine launch party gave graphic design students the opportunity to showcase what they have learned throughout the semester by editing and creating their own 20-page edition of Taste of StMU magazine, complete with ads, photographs and stories. The chefs featured in their magazines provided the food for attendees of the event to share.

On the menu were gateway tofu, chicago-style pizza, pasta e fagioli, Tex-Mex breakfast pizza, stir-fried chicken, margherita pizza, lemon pepper salmon, sopa de lima con pollo y elote, ombré swirl cake, crepes, Oreo cheesecake cookies and chocolate marble cake. See Flickr photo album.
