A Night in the Valley

January 27, 2017

The Party: The champagne was flowing at this black-tie gala at Trident Technical College’s Main Campus. Guests mingled around tables piled high with shrimp, oysters, and a delectable array of cheeses before sitting down to an extravagant three-course meal prepared by Culinary Institute of Charleston students and instructors. During dinner, the bidding began on big-ticket items such as a Kennedy Space Center astronaut adventure, dinner with Gullah chef Benjamin Dennis, a private historian’s tour of the United States Capitol, and a week-long stay in the Bahamas.

Highlight: The three-course dinner consisting of winter panzanella, roasted grouper, and coffee-rubbed beef short rib

Overheard: “Look at us all dolled up!”
