GRAYSLAKE – Enjoy student-prepared hors d’oeuvres and desserts while helping raise funds for scholarships at a holiday reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7 in Café Willow at the College of Lake County’s Grayslake Campus.
Students in CLC’s hospitality and culinary management program will serve their final projects from the Garde Manger course, as well as baking and pastry courses. Garde Manger is a French term that refers to foods prepared in the cold kitchen. They include smoked meats, sausages, pâtés (finely or coarsely ground blends of meats and seasonings) and terrines (ground blends of meats, vegetables or seafoods and seasonings packed in a loaf-shaped mold).
Additionally, students in CLC’s advanced baking and pastry classes will serve breads and desserts. The delectables are a showpiece of techniques and products students have learned throughout the semester.
Beer, wine and a signature cocktail will be available for purchase.
Admission is $20 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger.
All proceeds benefit CLC’s hospitality and culinary management student scholarships.
Tickets are available at the Grayslake Campus in the Business and Social Sciences division office, Room T302 or in Prairie, the student-managed restaurant in the Lower Level A Wing (during service hours only).
