The Farm Table

Farm-to-Table Dining Experience

When dining with us please keep in mind that this is not a business but a teaching/learning experience for our students. As our dining guests, you provide the students with an opportunity to practice their art - cooking, plating and serving. We ask for your patience during your visit and trust our students to do their very best to serve you an outstanding meal in an unparalleled environment, at a reasonable price. Our dishes are crafted by hand using locally sourced, sustainable, organic ingredients where possible, in the theme of the 100 Mile Diet. If you have particular menu and/or dietary requests, please feel free to mention them to you server.

We thank you for your contribution to the development of yet another generation of outstanding Culinary Arts graduates and invite you to provide constructive feedback on your dining experience.
