Culinary Students Get High-Intensity Experience on Food Truck

Students of the Culinary Program will be cooking and serving food from the Gonzo Gourmet food truck from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 3.

The truck will be parked outside the UT Conference Center, 600 Henley Street, on the Locust Street side of the building.

Students will join Chef Brandon WIlson, chef/owner of the Gonzo Gourmet food truck and a graduate of the program, to serve lunches they helped plan, prep and cook in a fast-paced, high-stress environment.

The menu includes a Tennesse chicken club sandwich on a brioche roll, Sweetwater macaroni and cheese, cheesy pulled barbecue in a potato cup, crispy collard greens and cornbread. Students also will be serving pumpkin milkshakes.

Lunch is $5 and includes a bottled water or canned beverage. Credit cards are accepted.

The Culinary Program is a full-time 12-week certificate course to prepare students for careers in restaurants, hotels, catering and sales. The next session begins Jan. 19, 2016.

The event is open to the public.
