Come on folks, you can’t beat this deal anywhere else – 3 course dinner plus a cocktail hour for $10. Now I know you are saying to yourself “no way” and I am saying “way”.

What: $10 three course dinner with a cocktail hour - $10 per person. The fixed menu of appetizer, entrée and dessert, will be prepared by 25 culinary students under the guidance of Jerry Pellegrino, Executive Chef of Baltimore’s acclaimed Corks Restaurant.

Why: So students preparing for careers in the hospitality industry can demonstrate their newly-learned skills from the National Academy Foundation High School (NAF) at Baltimore’s inaugural “Restaurant Night” on Wednesday, February 25. Students from the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism will prepare and serve a three-course dinner.

Working with high school students and giving them the additional tools to succeed in the world is one of my pleasures. This is a subject close to my heart and because of that I have been on the Restaurant Association of Maryland Education Foundation Board for a number of years. I mentor the Carver Center’s Culinary Team who will be going up against the Digital Harbor's Culinary Team in the state championship in two weeks. May all teams do well.

You can support the ProStart high school culinary programs statewide, get $300 of restaurant gift certificates and a chance to win a car – check this out HERE.

Have a child who is interested in the culinary field/hospitality field - bring them to the dinner, let them see what students can do.

The National Academy Foundation High School of Baltimore City prepares over 350 students each year for careers in hospitality and tourism, finance, and information technology through work-based learning curriculum and experiences, and partnerships with local business and industry professionals. The unique curriculum emphasizes both academic excellence and career training with traditional classroom instruction, internships, and job shadowing.
