(Abilene) – It’s that time of year again, when we open our doors for the public to meet our newest crop of  culinarians. Beginning October 29th the TSTC Culinary Institute will serve lunch and dinner Tuesdays – Thursdays through December 5. These meals are by reservation only. Reservations can be made at http://culinaryinstitute.tstc.edu/events/ or by calling 325-670-9240.

These reservation only meals are part of the Gallery Event for the 2013 TSTC Culinary Institute class, in which the students are graded on a number of criteria for each station they work. The Gallery Event provides students with the hands-on opportunities as lead chef, sous chef, prep cook, hosting, serving, managing and cashier. The students gain valuable experiences in all areas of a working restaurant. As a team, the class develops the menu and participates in the ordering and pricing of each meal. It is hands-on experiences such as these, which Texas State Technical College is known for, that enables our graduates to secure positions upon graduation and make an immediate impact in their workplace.
