ACA to Prepare Vegan Dinners this Spring

February 2, 2012

Careme’s Restaurant at Atlantic Cape Community College’s Academy of Culinary Arts is the venue of choice for vegan fine dining in South Jersey.             

Careme’s will open its doors to the public for two special events this spring, hosted by the American Vegan Society:

·      Valentine’s Dinner Buffet, 6:30 p.m., Tuesday Feb. 14, treat the one you love to a healthy vegan meal. Pair dinner with your favorite bottle of wine. Anne Dinshah, author of Dating Vegans, will be present for a book signing at 6 p.m.

·      Spring Celebration Dinner, 6:30 p.m., Monday, March 26, celebrate the vernal equinox with a delicious vegan meal. Bring friends, wine and an appetite.

Culinary students develop menus and prepare dinners for vegan events. ACA students cultivate most of the ingredients used in the vegan dishes in Atlantic Cape’s organic greenhouse and organic herb garden.

Tours of the ACA kitchens and Atlantic Cape’s organic greenhouse begin at 5:45 p.m.
