RACINE – Looking for a different lunch option? How about some fine dining? Look no further than Gateway Technical College’s Racine campus.

Students in GTC’s Culinary Arts Program will present a Fine Dining Luncheon on Wednesdays starting this week (February 23) and running through March 30. The meals, priced at $16 per person, include appetizer, soup or salad, entrée, vegetable, home-made bread, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage.

The meals will be served over the noon hour in the Breakwater Dining Room (Room L007) in the Lake Building on GTC’s Racine Campus, 1001 S. Main St. Reservations are required. Guests are asked to arrive no later than 11:45 a.m.

After the meal, luncheon guests will be asked to provide feedback to the students by filling out a questionnaire.

“Students are provided the opportunity to demonstrate the acquired skills they have attained throughout the degree in this course,” GTC Culinary Instructor Adam Larkin said in a news release. “Students in fine dining work all the stations throughout the semester to gain the experience they can use at their workplace, and to introduce them to different positions they might not have had to work prior to this.”

Larkin added that the positions worked by the students during the Fine Dining Luncheons include the front and back of the house, waiting tables, garde-manger (salad and appetizer preparation and plating), soups, vegetables and starches, entrees, bakery, and production manager.
