Come and delight your palate with cuisine from six different countries at Moraine Park Foundation’s Gourmet Dinner. The event, presented by the Moraine Park Culinary Arts Program and National Exchange Bank and Trust, will be held on Friday, April 24, at 5:30 p.m. on the College’s Fond du Lac campus.
The event theme, “A World of Good Taste,” combines the appreciation of global delicacies with the feel of the golden age of travel. Guests are invited to enjoy entertainment by local talent, bid on silent auction items and try their luck in the always-popular wine cork pull. Vintage attire is also encouraged, although not required.
The evening will begin with a reception in the new Student Services addition, featuring a variety of worldly wines and hors d'oeuvres. Guests will then embark on a tour of food and wine from North and South America, Asia, Europe, Australia and Africa. The six-course dinner will begin with a Peruvian fish ceviche and chilled apple curry soup with beet relish from India. Followed by an Italian chopped escarole salad and a honey, lemon and cardamom yogurt sorbet from Morocco. The main entrée will take guests to Australia, with a fire-roasted rack of lamb featuring Australian wine butter, tarragon spinach and potato custard. The tour will conclude in America, where guests will savor the fresh flavors of a fruit tart and homemade ice cream.
The annual gourmet dinner, which features a different theme each year, benefits the Moraine Park Foundation’s general scholarship fund and the student emergency fund. Reservations are limited, and the cost of the event is $100 per person or a corporate table of eight can be purchased for $800.
