Preparing the next generation of industry leaders is a community endeavor at Cascade Culinary Institute. Elevation, our student operated restaurant, serves as the capstone course for students and an opportunity for community members to enjoy sustainable cuisine with a farm-to-table emphasis.
Elevation connects the public and students as an integral part of the curriculum. At the conclusion of the meal, or via the restaurant website, patrons are actively engaged in an e-survey, where they can provide feedback about their dining and service experience. The guest feedback is then integrated into the instructional process in order to influence both individual and group learning.
Student learning outcomes within Elevation associate with developing confidence in cooking and service techniques, effective communication skills, and teamwork as they prepare for a transition to their career path in the hospitality industry.
July 27, 2013 ~ 4 – 9 p.m. Farm-to-Table is an annual fundraising event for Cascade Culinary Institute. $100 per person includes reception, dinner and educational demonstrations.
“Being in the Capstone class has given me new meaning to the phrase the world is our
classroom, by giving me real life industry experience.” ~ Lyndsay Burginger
