A picture of a chef at work on the opening day of the certified kosher kitchen in Talcott Hall serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series. 

If this were a rub and sniff image, mouth watering smells of simmering collard greens, crisp fried chicken, and freshly baked chocolate cookies would emerge with a single scratch. On this day in late May, the dishes prepared in Talcott Hall were served on the opening day of Heritage Kosher Kitchen.

This week’s photo tour continues with the return of students for summer semester, a tennis court movie night, an outside lunch, and ends with a treetop view.
