GCC Culinary buffets start Tuesday March 13th

March is Mes Chamorro, and it is also buffet time for GCC Culinary Arts students taking Chef Paul Kerner’s Pacific and Asian Cuisine course. For the lucky buffet attendees, it means a $10 all-you-can-eat meal consisting of mouth-watering dishes created by these very talented students, under the watchful eyes of Chef Paul and Chef Bertrand Haurillon.

This year, they will host two buffets in March – on Tuesday, March 13 and Tuesday, March 20. After spring break, the buffets move to Thursdays in April – April 5, 12, 19, and 26. 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.

“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 will highlight the food from a different culture in our Pacific region.”

Come and ENJOY!!!
