CULINARY STUDENTS LEARN FROM CLE CHEFS

Junior Culinary students worked alongside four Cleveland chefs at a Cleveland Film Feast Fundraiser putting their newly acquired skills to the test.  Chefs Donna Chriszt of Table 45, Ruth Levine of Bistro 185, Karen Small of Flying Fig, Pamela Waterman of Duet Catering, and Britt Marie Culey from Coquette Patisserie treated guests to some of their favorite holiday dishes.  The students helped prepare, set-up, serve and clean up for the 75 person benefit.  “It is always a great opportunity for our first-year students to get a chance to meet and work with these chefs,” remarked West Shore Culinary Instructor Devan Corti.

Film Feasts is a series of parties, soirees, and gathering to celebrate all that is film and art in Cleveland.  All proceeds directly benefit the Cleveland International Film Festival.  This is the fifth year the West Shore Culinary students have assisted at the event held at the home of Laura and Barney Taxel.
