The students plan the menu within a budget, purchase food, prepare the meal and then serve guests. The four-course meal included tomato soup with parmesan toast; spinach salad with feta and pine nuts; chicken piccata, angel hair pasta and asparagus entree; and berry cheesecake with graham cracker crust for dessert.
