I didn’t but I would have, they were on break during the summer here. I have eaten at the local culinary schools restaurant a few times and it’s absolutely delicious! Do they offer a food tasting of some kind that you can test out their skills?

@Sporty-Bee:  Our reception site included the food, but this sounds like a fabulous idea. We actually used high school students from my old high school as a string quartet and it worked out wonderfully… I know it’s music vs. food, but hiring students is win-win because it gives them experience and a good cost for you.

I think as long as you’ve had meals prepared by this culinary school and you think they’re good and the students are properly supervised it should be ok?

My venue is actually at the local arts school, so the professor is the in house chef. The students normally prepare the food, but its still costing a fortune because the venue is a legit venue, and one of the best in town. Ive heard they have alot of selections and are really good. My parents and fi are going to the tasting tonight.

 

i think its a great idea to have the local school cater. They typically are better trained and more creative than most cooks. They also try harder because chances are they are getting graded/judged on their work, so theres an added incentive for them to make every plate amazing!
