KEY WEST, FL, March 17, 2023— The College of the Florida Keys continues its 2023 VIP Series with “Truckin’- a Grateful Look at Cooking” on Thursday, March 30 at 7 p.m. in the Tennessee Williams Theatre on the Key West Campus. This presentation will be led by Chef Stephan Juliusburger, faculty of Culinary Arts at CFK. In his 20s, he was the tour chef for the Grateful Dead for six years. He later wrote his master’s degree thesis on the sociology of food; from this came a broader understanding of the unique positioning of food – its place, purpose, and how it resonates in all of us. Join Chef Stephan to hear and discuss the role of cooking and community in today’s society.

In its ninth season, the College’s VIP Series invites the community to learn from the Visions, Ideas, and Perspectives of speakers of local, regional, and national prominence. The 2023 season includes presentations that focus on timely topics relevant to Keys’ audiences. Tickets for CFK’s VIP Series events are $5 at the door. Admission is free for students at CFK and Monroe County schools. For more information, call CFK at 305-296-9081 or visit the College’s website at
