Women in Culinary Scholarship Fundraiser | WisCommunity


Facebook Events near Menomonie

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 spring of 2020, and this is the inaugural event to kick off a year of fundraising for its inception. Join us at this event, and many more to support increasing female representation in our awesome and burgeoning Eau Claire food scene!

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).

100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Women in Culinary Scholarship fund! Ingredients will be sourced as locally as possible with some surprises here and there.

Guests Chefs include (but are not limited to) the following:
Danielle Louise Menting and Erica Cooper, The Informalist
Michelle Thiede and Kristen Dexter, Forage EC
Gregerson Stacy, Stacked
Mary Kastman, Purslane
Adam Kazort
Shawn Wamsley, Johnny's Italian Steakhouse

Guest Bartenders include:
Inga Orth, Around The Farm Table
Michael F Waldera, Locavore Mobile Kitchen Rockstar
