---- — Tickets are available for the eighth annual eight-course gourmet dinner to benefit students in Indian Hills Community College’s culinary arts program. The dinner event will be held in the Indian Hills Dining Room on Friday, Jan. 24.

Fatima Perez, Spain’s top mycologist and owner of Restaurant Fatima in the province of Castilla y Leon, will be returning to Indian Hills for the second consecutive year to work with the culinary students to prepare the various courses.

Trevor Glandon, an Indian Hills Culinary Arts graduate who now works at Bistro Montage in Des Moines, will be a special guest speaker for the dinner.

The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with a social time featuring wine and an assortment of appetizers influenced by Perez. Guests will then enjoy a multi-course meal that will be prepared by Indian Hills chefs and students. The full menu will be revealed the night of the event.

“This will be an outstanding experience with an eclectic mix of favorite dishes from around the globe honed toward Iowa tastes,” said Gordon Rader CEC, Indian Hills Culinary Arts program director. “As always, all proceeds are used to help culinary students continue their education at Indian Hills.”

Several outstanding Indian Hills culinary students will be awarded scholarships at the end of the meal.
