Posted on: September 13th, 2011 by insidemctc No Comments

MCTC students in the Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management programs got some real-world, hands-on experience this week.

A dozen enthusiastic students prepared, served and talked about food at the U.S. Foodservice Minnesota Epicurean Experience trade show at the Saint Paul RiverCentre on Monday, Sept. 12.

U.S. Foodservice asked MCTC students to be a part of this large annual event. As a result, the students represented the foodservice distributor by showcasing new lines of pizzas and barbequed meats.

The students enjoyed the opportunity to network with a diverse group of regional chefs and other food industry professionals, showcase their skills, sample some amazing food and learn a little bit more about the food industry.
