May 05, 2014

MISSOULA – Students in the Missoula College University of Montana Culinary Arts Program will host their annual Capstone Dinner at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 15, in the Ranch Club Event Barn located at 8501 Ranch Club Road.

Students crafted the menu for this year’s dinner, titled “A Montana Treasure.” It will showcase dishes inspired by Montana market basket items. The event is open to the public and tickets cost $85 per person.

Graduating culinary arts students will take guests on a journey across Montana through its fields and streams with menu items featuring bison, trout, quail, duck and Flathead cherries. There will be jam and jerky tasting station, and a local bluegrass band will play live music throughout the event. Participants can bid on food and other items during a silent auction.

Call 406-243-7870 to purchase tickets. All proceeds from the event will support the Culinary Arts Program, which enables students to participate in regional and national competitions, field trips, conferences and the Capstone Dinner.
