Ray’s at FareStart Guest Chef Night Jan. 24!

On Thursday, January 24 our Executive Chef Paul Duncan will cook alongside the hardworking students at FareStart to prepare a three-course meal while he teaches cooking skills, presentation techniques, and service standards in the kitchen.

Last year Chef Paul and FareStart served our famous Mediterranean Mussels and he had the opportunity to teach the students how to prep and cook with mussels, a new experience for most! Excited by being able to teach the new skills Paul will be preparing prawns and showing the students how to properly prepare and cook them.

Reserve your seats today to enjoy this delicious dinner and the satisfaction of helping our local community!
