Great Barrington: RSYP to host annual culinary arts dinner
Railroad Street Youth Project will be hosting its seventh annual Fall Culinary Dinner on Monday, Dec. 3, at Fiori.
The evening will feature a five-course meal selected and prepared by students in RSYP's Culinary Arts Apprenticeship Program under the mentorship of Brian Alberg of the Red Lion Inn and Dan Smith of John Andrews, and with the support of Zee Vassos of Firefly, Rachel Hunt of Fiori, and Jaime Paxton of the Meat Market.
Tickets are $125 per person, with proceeds and donations supporting RSYP programs and activities.
The Berkshire Culinary Arts Program was conceived in 2006 as a way to allow youth from throughout South County to work with area chefs to gain professional culinary training. The series of eight weekly sessions end with a community dinner overseen by guest chefs working with their apprentices to prepare gourmet meals for the public.
The evening will start with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres and then consist of five courses with themes selected by the participants and mentoring chefs to reflect their range of culinary expertise and the skill level of participants.
For more information on RSYP and to order tickets for the dinner, contact Maxine Carter-Lome at (413) 528-2475.
