Want something more than just dinner? If you’re interested in the top talent on the Arkansas culinary scene, think about the 2011 Chefs Ball. Put on by Pulaski Technical College’s Arkansas Culinary School, the six course extravaganza will be prepared by seven fantastic chefs:

Hors d’ Oeuvres by Chef William Ginocchio, CEC, PTC Arkansas Culinary School
Appetizer by Chef Coby Smith, CEC, Fox Ridge Retirement Community
Soup & Salad by Chef Jamie McAfee, CEC, Pine Bluff Country Club
Fish by Chef Cindy East, CEC, PTC Arkansas Culinary School
Entrée by Chef Dan Capello, CEC, Chenal Country Club
Dessert by Chefs Andre Poirot & Heidi Eppling, Peabody Hotel


Each course will be prepared with a secret ingredient that will be revealed during dinner. That’ll be interesting.

If you’re interested, the event is being held in the Campus Center Grand Hall on the Pulaski Technical College North Campus. It’s Sunday the 20th, 6 p.m. for hor d’oeurves and 7 p.m. for dinner. Tickets are $125 each. To order, please contact Renee Jeffery. 501.812.2879 or
