Culinary Students Present an “Evening with Julia Child”

Inspired by the woman who brought French cooking into American kitchens, senior-level Culinary students at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of California – Orange County will host an “Evening with Julia Child” on Thursday, September 17.

This special event coincides with OC Restaurant Week, sponsored by the Orange County Restaurant Association. Guests will enjoy a five-course prix-fixe menu for only $20. All gratuities go to the scholarship fund established for Culinary students.

“The students developed a menu that was inspired by recipes from Julia’s various cookbooks,” said Culinary Arts Instructor Brandy McKay. “The students have added their own touches to these classic recipes and are eager to pay tribute to this culinary legend.”

“An Evening with Julia” is being produced by Culinary Management students in the Senior Practicum class. The objective of the class is to learn how to plan and execute public functions and learn the skills needed to open their own restaurant.

50 Forks restaurant will also be participating in Restaurant Week and is offering a three-course lunch menu for only $10. Call 714.429.0918 for restaurant hours and reservations.
