Congratulations to entrepreneur and alumni Chef Tammie Mills!

“The first bites of the evening were passed appetizers of smoked salmon mousse canapés with pickled okra and dill, and spring pea pesto crostini with burrata and arugula…The menu for the evening was created and prepared by local restaurateur Tammie Mills of Blue Willow Café. Chef Tammie followed up the light appetizers with a hearty salad of roasted carrots with figs and marcona almonds on a bed of arugula with tahini pomegranate dressing. The main course was a tender, juicy baked spring chicken leg and thigh topped with garlic herbed goat cheese, balsamic roasted grapes, walnuts and honey.”

Bravo, Chef Tammie!! We knew you had what it took from your first semester at HCC! Here’s to your continued success! Cheers! 🔪🦅

Tonight, Culibary Arts students in the A la Carte Cooking class have traded in some of their traditional equipment for blender, scales, and strainer to put out a molecular-heavy menu for tonight’s service! They are excited to learn a little about alternative methods in food prep!


Chef Charles Carroll was in the house!!! 🤩🤩🤩
An honor to have him and the ROCC team in for lunch on Thursday!
An elite location for capstone students to work before graduation!
HCC culinary students have worked in ROCC kitchens in the past with great success. Proud to continue this relationship. 💪🏽🔪🦅💛

The visit with the River Oaks Country Club's (ROCC) leadership was a success! HCC Central's Leslie Landrey did a great job coordinating this visit and nurturing this relationship. The ROCC's COO, Executive Chef, HR Director, and a few others had an opportunity to tour the building, speak with instructors and enjoy lunch provided by the students. We discussed various partnerships, and they agreed to participate in a new employer engagement program I'm creating called - STAR Employers. More about that soon! - by Filecha Lucas, HCC Central Career Center Manager
