Culinary Arts ‘Gourmet Night’ Continues in Melbourne

Melbourne –  Ozarka College’s department of culinary arts announces dates for the remaining “Gourmet Night” events for the 2009 Fall semester.   The next dinner will take place Thursday, October 8 with subsequent dates to follow on October 22, November 5, and November 19.

Gourmet Night has become a tradition for the culinary arts program to showcase the skills these students are learning in the program.  The culinary teaching instructors say, “This is an opportunity for the students to practice what they are learning in a real restaurant setting.  Both the first and second year students work on this event to develop the menu, prepare and serve the meals as well as perform other tasks associated with a successful function of this nature.”

Dinner guests order from a select menu of items served in the formal culinary arts dining room in the John Miller Education Complex.  Reservations are appreciated, but not necessary.  The hours for Gourmet Night are 5:00-8:00PM.  Contact culinary instructors Eric Smith or Mimi Newsome at 870-368-2062 for more information.
