The final banquet of the school year is a multi-coursed French banquet. It is a 40-year tradition and has become the PIÈCE DE RÉSISTANCE of the Linn-Benton Community College Culinary Arts program. The entire event and menu is completely planned by the second-year students, using the many skills they have developed within the two-year program. It is executed by both first- and second-year students, with second-year students taking lead roles.
The 2015 French Banquet will be held on Thursday, May 21 and Friday, May 22 at 6:30pm. Ticket price is still to be determined. All tips from the banquet go to the student-run Culinary Arts Club that provides extracurricular opportunities for students at the school.
