Guam Community College

Spring is in the air, and at Guam Community College, that means it’s buffet time for Culinary Arts students taking Chef Paul Kerner’s Pacific and Asian Cuisine course. For the rest of us, it means $10 all-you-can-eat Wednesday buffets consisting of mouth-watering dishes created by these very talented students, under the guidance of Chef Paul and Chef Bertrand Haurillon.

Let’s get right to details: The buffets are on Wednesdays. Lunch is served from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the GCC Multipurpose Auditorium. The students prepare enough delicious food to serve 150 people, so it’s first come, first served – no reservations. Eat in only. Dinner is take-out only, served in the GCC kitchen from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. For both lunch and dinner, the price is $10 – cash only please.

March 29: Polynesian/Hawaiian

April 5:      South Asian

April 19:    Zealandia

April 26:    Melanesia

May 3:      May Harvest celebration at the Department of Agriculture. This buffet is FREE, and the students use local produce and items in their dishes, showcasing the variety of delicious items grown or produced on our beautiful island.

“This course teaches our student chefs how to take a recipe, multiply it to buffet proportions, and successfully plan and execute an attractive and delicious buffet within a certain budget,” said Chef Kerner. “Every week we highlight the food from a different culture in our Pacific region.”

This year, as an added bonus, the recipes for all of the individual buffets will be posted on the GCC Culinary Arts page on our web site!
