Please join us for the Courses XXIII Chefs’ Dinner at Fifty-One O One – HFC’s student-run restaurant in the Student & Culinary Arts Center (Bldg. M on the main campus) – on Saturday, April 15, at 6:00 p.m. to benefit student scholarships.

Nothing brings the Culinary program more joy than developing the next generation of Detroit’s great chefs and hospitality professionals. Sharing the experience is at the heart of why we operate our student-run restaurant.

What makes this special event even more special is the Courses XXIII Chefs’ Dinner marks 50 years of hospitality education at HFC. We’re looking forward to seeing you as we celebrate this milestone anniversary.
