Something super for supper

A couple of annual events stand out on the schedule of the hardworking students and instructors of the Culinary Arts course at Edward Milne Community School.

While all bits of knowledge gained and techniques learned are special, the gala banquet held each fall in the school commons and the spring buffet fundraiser at the Sooke Harbour House are definite high points in the school year.

Whether you have a connection with one or more of these career-focussed young people or not, this is a chance to support the next wave of workforce members, and be treated royally as part of the deal.

These are talented and eager young cooks working alongside profession mentors at the well-known and highly touted Sooke Harbour House.

Totally unforgettable cuisine is obviously the big draw, but it’s only part of this carefully-planned evening, as a silent auction will be happening as well – all taking place to the soundtrack of Lust Life – one of Victoria’s top modern jazz bands!

The date and time to note are: Friday, June 3 with doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Dining with a difference!

Sample the sumptuous splendor of this fabulous buffet dinner and demonstrate support for tomorrow’s top chefs while you’re at it.

The number of available tickets is limited so reserve now to avoid disappointment.

They’re available at the EMCS main office weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and after hours through the EMCS Program Office at 250-642-6371.

For more information call EMCS at 250-642-5211.
