About Peter D'Souza

About me


I have been teaching food and beverage courses at University of Wisconsin-Stout for the past 27 years. Stout is known for its hands-on minds-on philosophy of instruction and is a national leader in its programs. My expertise is in the area of full-service restaurant management, culinary management, wines and spirits, wine and food pairing, and professional dining etiquette. I am also the coordinator of "Rendezvous", a full service restaurant managed and operated by senior students in the Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management program.

I am married to Debra and we have two sons Michael and William with three grandkids Avery, Cleary, and Liam.

Future plans are to teach the Wine and Food Pairing class in Barcelona and Mallorca, Spain in January 2013 and Wine and Food Pairing in Paris and Bordeaux, France in Summer 2013.
