Welcome the New Executive Chef

Soon the campus will be buzzing with students again, back to UWEC for another exciting school year. Blugold Dining has made quite a few changes over the summer for you to explore. We will go into more detail about those changes in future blogs. We also want to take this time to welcome our new Executive Chef Tim Grayson. Chef Tim received his Masters Degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management from the prestigious, Ivy League Cornell University. He comes to us most recently from Rio De Janeiro, but calls Little Rock, Arkansas home. He currently owns a restaurant in Northern Brazil named Paladar, which means "Taste" in Portuguese. Tim began his diverse career at Walt Disney World in Orlando but has since worked worldwide and on several cruise ships. We look forward to experiencing Tim’s many culinary and cultural influences from the different countries he has explored along his culinary journey. Tim is married and has a daughter and granddaughter in Nashville, TN. Please join us all as we welcome Chef Tim Grayson to our campus.
