On Feb. 7, Taste of Education offers dinner and a show while showcasing the work of Western New York’s next generation of culinary talent.
It’s a buffet dinner of creative dishes combined with an Iron-Chef-style cooking competition. High school level culinary students from Angola Carrier Educational Center, Sanborn BOCES, and Medina BOCES will offer samples of a variety of pasta dishes.
Then professional chefs will team up with student partners and go head-to-head in a live cooking battle. The chefs are Arthur J. Pepe of the Garrett Club, Michael Ferraro of the Saturn Club, and Kevin Perrin of the Filling Station at Larkinville.
The 14th annual event, run by the New York State Restaurant Association’s Western New York chapter, raises money for scholarships to support local culinary students involved in the national ProStart culinary competition. So far, the event has underwritten nearly $125,000 in scholarships.
It’s at 6 p.m. at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens, 6461 Transit Road, Depew. Tickets, $25 available at the door or online via Eventbrite.
