Students in the College’s Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management program prepared a gourmet lunch of items selected from the menu at The Water Works Restaurant and Lounge for 65 invited guests at a Spotlight Menu event at the College this spring.

The Water Works Executive Chef Darryl Harmon was on hand to supervise and advise the students in the preparation of the meal that included fried oysters over spinach, salad, grilled salmon with risotto and lemon thyme chicken. The students’ culinary efforts received a round of applause from the diners and high praise from Harmon, who also complimented Mark Kushner, the program’s director, and College Chef Paul McCormick.“These students worked their butts off,” Harmon said.“Any one of them could work with me at The Water Works.” Graduates of the program are prepared for positions as managers of food, catering, banquet or conference services.
