In celebration of the School of Applied Technology’s 50th anniversary, the Culinary Arts Department will be hosting a Mardi Gras buffet from 5-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, in the Culinary Arts Building on the Wellsville campus.

The cost of the meal is $15, which includes beverages, or $7 for children under 10 years of age. All proceeds of the dinner will benefit the Culinary Honors Club’s Student Scholarships Fund.

The menu will include jambalaya, gumbo, shrimp etouffée, southern fried chicken, red beans and rice, muffuletta and po’boy sandwiches, collard greens, king cake, pecan pralines, beignets, and much, much more.

Deb Burch, chair of the Culinary Arts Department, said, it’s hard to believe that the School of Applied Technology is turning 50 years old, and added that the campus has a great night planned for its Mardi Gras buffet.

“The ‘king’ and ‘queen’ will be passing out commemorative mints tins, and we will have lots of beads and good food for everyone to enjoy,” she said.

The meal is open to the public and no reservations are required. For more information, contact Mary Ellen Wood, keyboard specialist in the Culinary Arts Department, at 607-587-3170.
