Careme’s, the student-run, gourmet restaurant at Atlantic Cape Community College’s Academy of Culinary Arts, will celebrate autumn with a seven-course Fall Harvest Dinner, presented by the Culinary Student Association, 6:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 24.
The seven-course dinner will be fall-themed and feature locally grown produce prepared by the ACA students. The event highlights community supported agriculture, bringing ingredients from the farm to the table. Patrons can bring their own wine or champagne.
Ticket cost is $60 per person, with proceeds benefitting the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape. Cash or check only; make checks payable to Atlantic Cape Community College. There are only 66 spots available, so make reservations by calling (609) 343-4940. Visit www.atlantic.edu/aca/caremesSpecials.htm to see the evening’s menu.
The restaurant is named after the first “celebrity chef” in culinary history, Marie-Antoine Careme. Careme’s command of culinary art was so famous in the early 19th century that he became known as “the chef of kings and the king of chefs.”
The ACA has been training future chefs and food service professionals for more than 30 years. For more information about the Academy, visit www.atlantic.edu/aca.
