HCCC to resume Subscription Dining series

This fall, Hudson County Community College — home of one of the East Coast’s most acclaimed culinary arts studies programs — will resume a Subscription Dining program that results in scholarships for deserving students.

Joseph Sansone, HCCC vice president for development, explained that the membership fee of $995 provides the series member with a table-for-four for eight, four-course luncheons on Fridays this fall.

The menus — which will be planned and prepared by the executive chef and a team of professionals who teach at the college’s Culinary Arts Institute (CAI) — will include soup, appetizer, entrée and dessert courses as well as nonalcoholic beverages. (Beer, wine and cocktails will be available at an additional charge.)

All meals will be served by the CAI’s professionally trained student staff in the beautifully appointed banquet room of the HCCC Culinary Arts Institute/Conference Center, 161 Newkirk St. in Jersey City — just two blocks from the Journal Square PATH station.

The Subscription Dining Series dates are Fridays, Sept. 30, Oct. 7, Oct. 14, Oct. 21, Oct. 28, Nov. 4, Nov. 11 and Nov. 18, with service from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Each meal will be completely different, and each will be equivalent to those served in the finest four-star restaurants, HCCC notes.

Sansone said Foundation’s Subscription Dining Series program was conceived and developed after several area businesspeople expressed the desire for more luncheon dining options, especially those where they could take clients and associates.

Complete information and a registration form for the Dining Series are available online at http://www.hccc.edu or by phoning the Foundation office at (201) 360-4006.
