Three dates left for RLC Culinary Arts Showcase

Only three dates are open for reservations at the Rend Lake College Culinary Arts Showcase this year after a wave of interest. Guests can choose from four different reservation times on April 26, May 3, or May 4.

Guests can call today for reservations for Thursday, April 26. The Showcase offers reservation times for 5, 5:30, 6, and 6:30 p.m. for up to six guests per reservation. In addition to pre-registration, guests will also be required to pre-pay for their reservation at $25 per ticket.

Those wanting to make reservations for the remaining two days next month can call to do so starting Monday, April 16.

The Culinary Arts Showcase is an event that resembles a fine dining restaurant run by RLC Culinary Arts students enrolled in the Restaurant Management course. Using the bi-level kitchen and dining area in the Student Center on the Ina campus, students work in a variety of roles, ranging from executive chef, sous chef, server, runner, Maitre D’, and many more to get hands-on experience in all aspects of the restaurant business.

This year’s menu, with the theme “a new twist on old classics,” can be found online here. For questions or to make a reservation, contact RLC’s Community and Corporate Education Division at 618-437-5321, Ext. 1714 or Their office is located upstairs in the Student Center, Ina campus.
