Beginning October 30, the TSTC Culinary Institute will serve lunch and dinner on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through December 5.
These meals are by reservation only, so those planning to attend can make reservations at culinaryinstitute.tstc.edu/events, or by calling 325-670-9240.
These reservation-only meals are part of the Gallery Event for the 2012 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 also develops the menu, and participates in the ordering and pricing of each meal.
It is hands-on experiences such as this which Texas State Technical College is known for, and that enables graduates to secure positions upon graduation and make an immediate impact in their workplace.
Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and dinner is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Prices for appetizers and salads wil run from $7 to $10, while lunches will cost anywhere from $12 to $18.
Dinners will cost anywhere from $15 to $30.
Beverages, tax and gratuities are not included in this pricing.
