Carteret Community College is home to one of the top ranked culinary schools in North Carolina, known for giving their students every opportunity to excel and learn from highly decorated chefs around the world. As an Escoffier Chef, our very own Floyd Olmstead of Floyd’s 1921 Restaurant is proud to support local culinary students through this year’s Carteret Community College Escoffier Dinner Series.
The vision of the Society of Escoffier is to continue the standards of haute cuisine and culinary tradition established by August Escoffier by marrying the resources of respected culinary professionals and enthusiasts in the sharing of common culinary experiences, and also recognizing achievement in, and providing support of, culinary education through scholarships for students. This year, Carteret Community College culinary graduates and three local Escoffier Chefs, including Chef Floyd, will create a fantastic four course dinner to help send top culinary students to France.
Chef Floyd will host the first of three dinners in the series on January 19th at the Crystal Coast Civic Center. All proceeds from ticket sales will support the Carteret Community College’s culinary students and their future programs, where they will have the opportunity to learn from experienced and cultured chefs around the world. You may purchase a ticket to Chef Floyd’s four-course Escoffier Dinner for $60, or purchase tickets to the series of three for $150. You can purchase your tickets to this one-of-a-kind dinner here.
