2024 Escoffier Dinner Series

January 23 | February 20 | March 19 | April 16

Help Carteret CC Culinary Arts, Baking & Pastry Arts, and Hospitality Management students go to France … by eating great food!

Each year, three to four students are selected to work with our Escoffier Chef friends in France for five weeks. When students return, they help plan and execute the Escoffier Chefs’ Dinners and teach current students techniques they learned while abroad.

Funding from the dinners pay for the students to participate in the French exchange program at no cost to them and remaining funds are used to support these three programs. Carteret CC is the only NC Community College to offer this unique opportunity.
