Leeward Community College is
hosting a very special dinner tonight, “Earth to Plate.” All dishes are created by student chefs and
highlight local ingredients from local farms.
The benefit dinner is part of the Culinary Arts Program. This year each student was paired with an
Oahu farm and created a dish based on their experience. Students learned the importance of food
sustainability and gained a stronger appreciation for local ingredients.
LCC student Joshua
Kainoa spent the semester working with Peterson Upland Egg Farm in Wahiawa.
“Earth to Plate” serves up a
five-course dinner tonight at The Pearl at Leeward Community College.
For more information on tonight’s event, call 455-0298.
