Mount Dora High presents 10th annual Tasting Gala

MOUNT DORA -- The Culinary Arts and Drafting programs of Mount Dora High School are excited to present the 10th annual Tasting Gala.  Guests will experience a unique display of restaurant designs while enjoying Chef's Specialties created and demonstrated by MDHS Culinary Arts and Drafting & Design students.

The event will occur at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29, in the Mount Dora High School Cane Café. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $15 each. This event is a fundraiser for the Culinary Art and Drafting programs.
This year’s designs and chef's specialties will pay tribute to the Big Apple, New York; Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. After guests have viewed the restaurant designs and sampled the cuisine from each team, they will be asked to cast a vote for the best menu design, food, restaurant design drawings, building model and restaurant display area.
The event allows guests to see demonstrated the learning that is taking place in the classroom through the students’ marketing and sales techniques, their menu selections, the food preparation, restaurant design drawings, building model and mock-ups of each team’s restaurant.
