By Megan Raymond

All semester, Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute’s Watauga Campus has been offering “Carry Out Cuisine” events in which members of the community can pay a reasonable price for international cuisine prepared by CCC&TI’s culinary students. The Watauga Campus has had a professional kitchen on site since 2015, allowing its students to build and practice their culinary skills. On Tuesday, November 6th, beginning at 5:30pm, second year culinary students of the Global Cuisine course will host the last “Carry Out Cuisine” event of the semester, focusing on Mexican cuisine. As an additional bonus to this final event, students will also be offering a “Chef’s Table” event at the same time, in which community members can purchase tickets, in addition to making a donation to the program, to a three course meal prepared right in front of them by the students. This provides the students with an opportunity to practice their skills in a real-world setting while also allowing the community to connect over reasonably priced food. Tuesday’s menu includes:

  • Ensalada mixta – mixed salad
  • Pan De Muerto – Day of the Dead bread
  • Rojo Chile De Carne – beef in red chilé sauce
  • Arroz a La Mexicana – Mexican rice
  • Calabacitas con Crema – creamed zucchini
  • Pastel De Tres Leches – three milk cake

All meals cost $20 and can be paid for by cash or check at the time of pickup. In order to attend the limited seating “Chef’s Table”, you can call Chef Robert Back at 828-297-3811, ext. 5222 for a reservation, and pay the $20 fee plus a donation upon arrival. The event will take place at Caldwell Community College Watauga Campus Kitchen, building W141, room 102. Seating for the “Chef’s Table” begins at 5pm while “Carry Out Cuisine” pickup begins at 4:30pm and ends at 5:30pm. Reservations are required for the “Chef’s Table”; don’t miss out on this opportunity to support local culinary students and experience their take on authentic Mexican cuisine this Tuesday, November 6th.
