Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) Culinary Arts students recently received support from the Chaine des Rotisseurs Society for a study abroad trip to Paris, France. Local Chapter President Allyson Hirsh organized a dinner at the Fowler Dining Room at the International Culinary Institute (ICI) at the Grand Strand Campus for members.
The French theme, six-course menu was enjoyed by 50 members of the Myrtle Beach area chapter. A live auction was held during the dinner and various gift packages, gift items and dinners prepared by International Culinary Institute chefs and students went to winning bidders.
The National Chaine des Rotisseurs matched local funds for a total donation of $8,796.04 for the students' trip. Allyson Hirsh commented, "The Chaine is committed to developing young chefs and students as the culinary leaders of the future."
The Chaine des Rotisseurs has over 20,000 worldwide members in 80 countries including 5,000 in the United States who share the same values and quality, fine dining, the encouragement of the culinary arts and the pleasures of the table. The desire of the Society is to bring together amateurs and professionals, from all over the world, whether they are hoteliers, restaurateurs, chefs, or sommeliers in the appreciation of fine cuisine.
