Those who like supporting local students and eating good food in pleasant surroundings take note: St. Croix culinary students will be serving up a gourmet luncheon Oct. 6 and again on Oct. 20 at the St. George Village Botanical Garden. Students from the St. Croix Career and Technical Education Center’s culinary program have wowed diners at the annual St. Croix Educational Complex Image Awards, Government House ceremonies, fundraising banquets, and many other meetings and gatherings not just with well-made, delicious and attractive food but with the poise and professionalism of their service. Many of the culinary program’s past students have already gone on to further their educations at culinary schools around the nation or have pursued hospitality careers in other ways.
