March 01, 2019

Culinary Arts students from Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES delivered an authentic Asian feast at a luncheon at Educated Palate North restaurant at Tilly Foster Educational Institute recently. They have been serving professional luncheons to sold-out crowds twice a month at the state-of-the art facility in Brewster.
Customers were treated to appetizers, soup, salad, entrées and an exotic dessert, all with a creative Asian twist.
Maeve Babnik, from Carmel High School, said, “I enjoy learning how to cook all different types of cuisine.”
“I really love the fact that we learn how to prepare food as well as serve and learn all other aspects of running a restaurant,” said Brooke Robbins from Mahopac High School.
Hospitality students at Tilly Foster learn cooking and baking/pastry arts, food safety, sanitation, and nutrition, in addition to the business aspect of running a restaurant. They get hands-on experience via the Educated Palate North restaurant and by catering special events.
“We have such a professional environment here,” said Katherine Diosdado, from Mahopac. “We are learning so much, and I enjoy every minute of it.” 
Tilly Foster North provides an elegant, rustic setting for luncheons.
