The dinner kicks off the Chef’s Dinners events held by Culinary Arts students of the Tech Center and local chefs. The program is designed to provide the students with real world experience with a chef, and to incorporate local professionals into career and technical education programs.

“I participate because I and to try to help out young people in the career field I’m in,” says Chef Seth McKee. “It’s a way to give back and mentor people.”

This is the third year of the Guest Chef dinners. The proceeds from the ticket sales cover the food costs, and provide funding for a field trip. “The last two years of dinners got us to Seattle Central Community College’s Seattle Culinary Academy,” says Palmer. “We’ve been able to pay for students to eat a formal sit-down lunch, too,” a new experience for most of the students.
