Four years ago, a Bloomberg study found that less than 7% of restaurants in the United States are run by women. Locavore Mobile Kitchen owner and chef Amy Huo has decided to do something about this inequity at the local level. In 2018, she established a new scholarship at CVTC entitled "Women in Culinary." The mission of this scholarship is to support a female enrolled in the Culinary Management program at CVTC by lessening the burden of tuition and other costs. The first scholarship will be awarded in the spring of 2020, and this is the inaugural event to kick off a year of fundraising for its inception.
Guests chefs are asked to create a dish that represents them and their style. Guests attending the event may order a-la-carte from the menu. Beer and wine (and a few specialty beer/wine cocktails available for purchase as well).
