CIC Team Creates Tablescape for Charity Event

Chefs Vagasky, Wilson, and Sonoski, and Instructor Buzzelli

Tablescapes, an event to benefit Lowcountry Orphan Relief, took place at the Marriott on November 4- 6. Teams were asked to create a tablescape for the dinner of their dreams. The CIC team created a Culinary Cornucopia Dream Dinner, with "guests" who were superstars in the hospitality industry: The King of Culinary, Escoffier; the Queen of Culinary, Julia Child; the King of Beverage, Dom Perignon; and the Hospitality Queen, Emily Post. "Just as our dinner guests created the cornucopia that is the hospitality industry, our students and faculty have combined their inspired talents to create a royal Tablescape."

Congratulations to Baking and Pastry Chef Instructor David Vagasky, who made the bread cornucopias with his Artisan Breads class; Baking and Pastry Chef Instructor Kelly Wilson, who made the marizipan fruit and chocolate placecards with her Advanced Baking class; Baking and Pastry Adjunct Instructor Heather Sonoski, who made the gum paste leaves, acorns, and butterfly with her Wedding Cakes class; and Hospitality Instructor Lisa Buzzelli, who worked on organization, execution, place settings, linen, decor, and break down with her Catering Management class.
