Great Lakes ~ Great Chefs Dinner

Friday, November 10, 2017

The Great Lakes Campus hosted a great night of food and wine presented by the Great Lakes Culinary Institute and Superior Foods. The evening began with sparkling wine and a raw bar on the Great Lakes Campus catwalk, then moved to Lobdell's: A Teaching Restaurant for five amazing courses and a spectacular view. Guest chefs working in collaboration with GLCI students included GLCI alumni Stephanie Witala (S2S), Katie Ianni (Executive Pastry Chef, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa) and Ed Sura (Executive Chef, NoMi, Park Hyatt, Chicago); as well as Chef Joseph George (Kingsley Enterprises) and Chef Rob Sargent (Stafford's Hospitality, The Pier). Imperial Beverage sponsored the wine for the event.

Proceeds from this event are used to bring talented chefs and others from the culinary world to the Great Lakes Culinary Institute to teach and work side by side with students.
