Fundamentals of Culinary Arts Diploma

The Moorhead campus cafeteria was the scene of "food truck wars" when about two dozen Culinary Arts students divided into three teams and competed for the honor of best buffet. The students - all enrolled in the program's buffet lab - chose their own food theme, decorated their "trucks" and prepared the food. For the standard cafeteria buffet cost of $6.99, diners got a generous sampling at the Dawg House with house-made jumbo hot dogs, a sushi-themed spread (No More Mr. Rice Guy) and the Rollin' on the River Food Truck, which rolled to victory as the diners' favorite with Cajun-style shrimp and grits fritters.
