With the aim to continue to build relationships between institutions, our partnership with Mackenzie provides the opportunity for their students based in São Paulo, Brazil, to study abroad in Switzerland! The collaboration offers two programmes, including the Study Abroad programme at HIM, for the Mackenzie Hospitality postgraduate students and the Top-up programme at Culinary Arts Academy, for the Mackenzie Culinary undergraduate students.

Visiting SEG this week was very important to solidify the institutional partnership with Mackenzie Presbyterian University. I had the opportunity to attend classes at HIM, which were excellent and demonstrated the great opportunity we offer to UPM students to study here

Ending her successful trip, Camila conducted a Brazilian Gastronomy Masterclass with the Culinary BA Term 4 students based on, The Roots of Brazilian Cuisine. The 4-hour masterclass began with a presentation based on Brazilian food and culture, the aromas, colours and flavours of Brazil, as well as educating the students on the history of particular Brazilian dishes and which regions they originated from. After the presentation, the culinary students had the chance to put their learnings into practice and created Brazilian dishes from scratch in the demo kitchen. For the main course they made, Picadinho de Carne served with rice, black beans and farofa and for dessert, Brigadeiro with Bolo de rolo.
