SLCC’s Culinary Club gives students an opportunity to network, share ideas, showcase talents and listen to lectures from chefs. They also use the lessons that they learn to cater festivals and fundraisers.
“The Culinary Club exists and we welcome all SLCC students,” said Chris Williams, President of the Culinary Club.
The club provides many different activities where students can get real-world experience when it comes to cooking and catering.
This includes participating in ChefDance, which takes place during the Sundance Film Festival. At this event, they get to cook under the supervision of world-renowned chefs.
Club members are also given the opportunity to prepare gourmet foods for Hollywood guests. In the past, such guests have included Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington and Jamie Fox.
The Culinary Club also devotes a great deal of time and effort to fundraisers and community activities.
This month the club will be catering for March of Dimes, on October 25.
In December, they will be partnering with the queer–straight alliance, Coloring Outside the Lines, for their AIDS Awareness Dinner.
They are currently selling pies for Thanksgiving as a fundraiser.
The club meets every first Monday and last Wednesday of the month in room 101 of the Culinary Arts building at Miller Campus.
At meetings, members can network, share ideas, showcase talents, and listen to lectures presented by chefs and more. Those interested do not need to be experienced with cook, and will learn from the 30 club members and activities.
“Whether you are an experienced culinary student, or just a regular student, you are welcome to join,” said Williams.
