Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute’s Watauga Campus Culinary Arts program will offer “Carry Out Cuisine” events during the Spring 2019 semester to the general public and will also continue to offer the “Chef’s Table” Dining Experience events.

The spring menus will each center around different cooking techniques and feature menu items prepared using the assigned technique.

Both the “Carry Out Cuisine” and the “Chef’s Table” events offer the public an opportunity to enjoy gourmet fare at a reasonable price, while also helping CCC&TI’s Culinary students apply their classroom knowledge in a real-world setting.

Meals are $20 per person and reservations are recommended. Cash only payments are accepted when meals are picked up on the day of service. Pick up times are 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Watauga Campus Kitchen, Building W141, Room 102.

A limited number of tickets to the “Chef’s Table” Dining Experience will be available during each Carry Out Cuisine event. Tickets are $25. Diners at the Chef’s Table watch as meals are being prepared by the students and enjoy tableside service in the Culinary Arts Kitchen. Reservations are required ahead of time for seating at the “Chef’s Table.”
