On Thursday, 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.
The desserts included pumpkin bread pudding with spicy apple caramel sauce, lemon tart with a mint and raspberry coulis, and triple chocolate mini-cakes with creme anglais.
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.
