Wine and food enthusiasts can do just that at 6 p.m., Friday, Nov. 17, at the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape Community College, 5100 Black Horse Pike, Mays Landing. In conjunction with the Atlantic City chapter of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the academy hosts this celebration where guests will be treated to authentic French country food “live cooking stations” operated by culinary students, complemented by selection of international wines, and topped off with a delectable dessert reveal to end the night.

The event takes place in the working kitchens of the academy offering a rare, behind-the-scenes look at how our area’s top culinary and hospitality students prepare for such a unique event. In the past, it was known as a Beaujolais Nouveau tasting open only to Chaîne members and their guests, but last November the event was reimagined as the Academy of Culinary Arts Food & Wine Festival, now includes wines of many different origins to complement the students’ preparations, and is open to the public.
