: Tickets are now available for a special Culinary Academy fundraiser: a traditional Cajun Boucherie
to be held on Wednesday, April 30, at 5:30 PM in the Campus Center Commons.
What is a boucherie
? It's an old Southern tradition that involves a gathering of family and friends preparing a pig for food provisions for the upcoming hard season. Culinary students will be serving a sampling of various entrees, sides, sauces and specialties that will showcase their talents. Unlike at a Cajun boucherie, guests at this event don't have to do the cooking! Just come and enjoy a great evening of food, drink and conversation with family and friends.
Tickets are $10 each
and may be purchased by emailing Josh Kranz
or calling 995-3030.
