Klaus Tenbergen, associate dean of the Hospitality Management program at Cuyahoga Community College, brings a global culinary perspective to Tri-C.  A native of Germany, Klaus began is career there, owned and operated a bakery in South Africa, and ran the culinary program at California State University, Fresno before coming to Cleveland. 

Tenbergen was generous with his time for this interview, explaining how students learn culinary arts and entrepreneurship, discussing a recent “culinary mission” to France to start a student exchange program, and explaining why some chefs gravitate toward baking, others cooking.

Baking is Tenbergen's specialty, and he is enthused about the trend toward urban gardening in Cleveland.
