International Dinners to be Served by GNTC's Culinary Arts Program in June

This summer semester, the Culinary Arts program at GNTC is teaching Contemporary Cuisine. Chef Greg Paulson, director of GNTC's Culinary Arts program, is asking GNTC staff, students, family, and friends to participate in private dinners at the Woodlee Culinary Arts facility. 

The international dinners will be served on Tuesday evenings throughout the month of June. The prefixed menu will offer choices of appetizers, soups or salads, entrées, and desserts at a set price. The inclusive menu price will range from $18 to $22.

The reason for the cost for the meal price range is because of the menu item selections. The Culinary Arts program is only trying to cover its cost of the groceries being consumed. (Note: only personal check or cash will be accepted). In any case, the price will be a real bargain!

There will be three different time seating times at 5 p.m., 5:45 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. at each dinner. Every seating will be a minimum of 24 patrons or a maximum of 30 patrons. These dinners are seated meal service with tableside service staff, not buffets.

All guests are asked to arrive 5-10 minutes prior to their seating times. Service will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m., 5:45 p.m., and the last seating will be at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are required. Guests will be seated upon arrival by the Maître d’.

To make a reservation, contact Chef Greg Paulson at (706) 295-6880. Your table will be reserved and be considered part of the 24 patrons for that service time.

Remember, the menu is àla carte with set price. Each team of students has developed, planned, prepared, and supervised their themed meal. At the conclusion of your meal, a critique survey will be presented to you. Please complete the form and submit it to Chef Greg Paulson or Chef Kasey Cromer, Contemporary Cuisine instructors.
