Current and future chefs with Santa Fe Community College’s Culinary Arts Program will present an elaborate Valentine’s feast in the Jemez Rooms on campus Friday, Feb. 13. The event is a benefit for the program’s study abroad fund.
“Last year, this event was so popular we sold out completely,” said Deborah Boldt, Executive Director of the SFCC Foundation which sponsors the benefit event. “Thanks to terrific support of our primary sponsor – the Simon Charitable Foundation, our student-chefs enriched their culinary expertise on an extraordinary trip to Italy, visiting cooking schools and chefs and learning new skills first hand.”
The sumptuous four-course dinner will feature special wine pairings with each course. Mouth-watering and creative, the menu includes extravagant mussels sautéed with jalapenos, a two-color buffalo short rib ravioli and grilled beef tenderloin with a chocolate red wine demi sauce. Dessert is baked Alaska, caramel ice cream and chocolate cake with torched meringue and blood orange pomegranate sauce.
Tickets are $80 single; $150 per couple, including wine. Only 100 tickets are available. Reservations must be made by telephone. Please call the SFCC Foundation at 505-428-1855.
