Chef Meg Galvin and MCI profiled on Spectrum News

Cincinnati State Culinary professor Chef Meg Galvin was the subject of a profile by Spectrum News 1 Cincinnati on Sep. 26.

You can watch the profile at or click on the image above.

The 3-minute video profile shows Chef Galvin and her students "in action" during Culinary courses.

The profile highlights some challenges of teaching hands-on skills classes during the pandemic, as well as Chef Galvin's reasons for leaving the culinary industry to join the faculty of the Midwest Culinary Institute.

The profile also points out Chef Galvin's status as "World Master Chef," and the fact that she was only the 16th woman to be awarded this designation from the World Master Chefs Society.
