Last Thursday, a group of 100 foodies gathered at Durham College for their 4th annual Harvest Dinner. Besides gathering together for a community celebration, this dinner recognizes the amazing work being done at W. Galen Weston Centre for Food by students. Their exclusive menu featured fresh food grown and harvested by students in the college’s food and farming programs, cooked by students in the culinary programs and served by students studying in hospitality and events program.
I’ve always wanted to participate in a dinner prepared by student chefs and this was the perfect opportunity! Watching the students accomplish such a huge feast for a large group of hungry foodies is a great achievement.
Please enjoy the photos from the harvest dinner!
