The campus community was then invited out to sample the foods that the students had to offer. The High Tea event is part of the program's required coursework, and everything served was entirely whipped up by the students.

"I just enjoy making different foods," RLC Culinary Arts student Leviticus Riley of Johnston City said. "I just basically love experimenting."

"It really put me out of my bubble and had me trying different things," said student Ailyssa Lewis of Newton.
