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.

Bad decision to do away with Freshens in Davies - I hear complaints all over campus about it.

that is so cool! I'm from Brasil and will be joining the University next semester, it's very nice to know that you have such a diverse environment over there.

Dear Anonymous.

Thank you for your post. I appreciate you letting us know you position. The amount of business Freshens was doing in Davies was really low all last year. We think we really have a hit with the soup bread bowls down where Freshens was and business already is doing more than what Freshens was doing.

Thanks, we are excited to have him too. I think you will see some nice things ahead.

Take care,
