Joan Quinn

Greetings to all Ellington’s Guests! I’m Joan Quinn, and I’m the instructor for FCNS 320, Quantity Food Production and Service, which is the academic class behind Ellington’s. I’ve been teaching this class for over 20 years, and it has evolved a lot along the way. Way back when, we prepared and served an all-you-can-eat buffet in the Chandelier Room in Adams Hall. However, due to the growth in our program (Nutrition, Dietetics and Hospitality Administrative), we outgrew that facility. Fortunately, Holmes Student Center was kind enough to invite us to use the facility known as The Pheasant Room as our quantity foods lab. We made the move to HSC in 2006 and we renamed the facility “Ellington’s” in Fall, 2007. I personally love menu planning, love cooking, and really enjoy working with the students in the class. It can be challenging at times- for we have a new menu and staff every day we serve- but it is incredibly rewarding to see how much students’ progress within a semester. So, welcome to Ellington’s for a great semester of very exciting menus and service!
