The purpose of this Honor’s Paper is to demonstrate the comprehensive scholastic work and practical experience that we—Taylor Palma, Jackie Herrick, and Brigid Greaney—have completed in the Hart School of Hospitality, Sport & Recreation Management at James Madison University. In this paper we will discuss our Themed Event project, A Taste of Tuscany, with its rationale rooted in Italian food and wine culture. Authenticity and faithfulness to the Italian ways were of chief importance throughout the planning and execution of our project. In outlining the details of our event, we have included the logistics, from menus to floor diagrams, as well as personal reflections. Moreover, our learning experience extended well beyond the formal classroom walls and into the realm of applied theory. In turn, our Honors College project synthesizes the educational experiences we have gathered throughout our experiential learning journey.
