Community dinners are starting again at Maple Ridge Secondary School.
The meals include four courses prepared by students of the MRSS culinary program, and are a fraction of the cost one would pay if dining out at a restaurant.
The first dinner will take place on Thursday, Nov. 23 and will start with a Caesar salad, followed by penne with tomato sauce, garlic broccoli and chicken parmesan, and tiramisu for dessert.
Instructor Chef Trevor Randle said he has been fielding questions about when the community dinners would start again since the beginning of September.
“The community dinners continue to be an important part of both the school and community culture. It has become an evening that both guests and culinary arts students look forward to each night,” said Chef Randle.
He noted that the dinners give his culinary arts students an opportunity to cook some different meals and to serve to the public. The dinners also give the public an opportunity to enter the building to see – and taste – the amazing dishes the secondary school students are creating.
