RCC students play Hunger Games

On December 6, Rappahannock Community College’s Culinary Arts students took their final exam to a public forum with a “Hunger Games” presentation open to all RCC students, staff, and faculty. Eight budding chefs lovingly created several delicious desserts which were then awarded to attendees via a drawing. Pictured, top to bottom, at right: pumpkin bread pudding with spicy apple caramel sauce, lemon tart with a mint and raspberry coulis, and triple chocolate mini-cakes with creme anglais. Not pictured: vanilla mousse cheesecake.

Chef Hatley Bright, the Culinary Arts program’s coordinator and instructor, stated that she selected dessert preparation as part of the final exam because it was an area in which the students had little prior experience. At upper left, Chef Bright supervises the efforts of student Kurt Schwindt.

At the conclusion of the “Games,” Bright’s class received certificates recognizing their participation. Pictured at bottom (seated, left to right) are John McDermott of Gloucester County, Jesse Phelps of Middlesex County, Alex Anderson of Mathews County, and Sarah Lacombe of Gloucester County. Standing, left to right: Devin Ball of Westmoreland County, Chris Kuykendall of Northumberland County, Tina Kidd of Richmond County, and Kurt Schwindt of Gloucester County.
