Westmoreland Community College's Chefs' Table honors Richard Rosendale
This year's Chefs' Table at Westmoreland County Community College was titled “A Send Off to the Bocuse d'Or, Featuring the Bouchons of Lyon.” The French flair was a tribute to WCCC culinary program alumnus Richard Rosendale, who will represent the United States in the prestigious French culinary competition in January.
Executive chef at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., Rosendale was unable to attend the Nov. 4 event at WCCC, but he sent greetings via a video presentation.
On hand were this year's inductees into the college's Center for Culinary Arts and Hospitality Hall of Fame, Deborah Balog of Irwin, a foods specialist with Giant Eagle; and Lenora Palonder of Perryopolis, chef and owner of The Inn at Lenora's in Perryopolis.
The annual dinner is prepared by students in the program, with this year's menu a Francophile's dream including Coquille Saint Jacques, boeuf bourguignon and quiche. Proceeds benefit the WCCC Education Foundation.
Seen at the table: WCCC President Daniel Obara with Ann, Ron and JoAnn Eberhardt, Debra Woods, Brent Wertz, Joe Basch, Jim and Kathy Bendel, Pat Walt, Bill and Beverly Scalise, Gene Ciafre and Trudy Brigode Ciafre, Mud and Phyllis Kluska, Bud and Ellen Smail, Mary Ann Fusco and Ricky Lang, Chuck and Nancy Anderson and Richard and Cathy Pieper.
