Coos Bay, OR – The Oregon Coast Culinary Institute (OCCI) at Southwestern Oregon Community College is delighted to announce two upcoming opportunities for the community to experience an exquisite three-course luncheon put on by the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Culinary Youth Team USA. Following the success of our November event, we invite you to join us at OCCI on Sunday, January 7, 2024 and Saturday, January 20, 2024. Lunch is $35 per person, with reserved seating available every 30 minutes from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m.

Once again, these events serve as a valuable practice session for the ACF Culinary Youth Team USA as they gear up for the international competition in Stuttgart, Germany in February 2024. It also provides an opportunity for our local community to come together and appreciate the artistry and skill of these budding culinary talents. Proceeds from the luncheon will contribute to the team’s competition expenses.

Lunch includes a delectable vegetarian starter, a mouthwatering beef entrée, and a tropical dessert that is sure to leave a lasting impression. To maintain the integrity of the menu, we are unable to accommodate substitutions for this event. The carefully curated menu is the same for both dates (and is the same from the November event).

Make your reservation today by sending an email to shawn.warren@socc.edu with your preferred reservation date and time. Parties larger than six cannot be accommodated.
