Speaking of good taste, the taste of success is always sweet. On Friday, April 20, the Louisiana Technical College Greater Acadiana Region Foundation held the fourth annual "A Taste of Success" event at the Heymann Performing Arts and Convention Center. The evening was filled with mouth watering food prepared by the alumni of the LTC-Lafayette Campus Culinary Arts & Occupations program who are now serving as chefs in fine restaurants in the Acadiana area. The LTC alumni chefs included Roy Angelle of Oakbourne Country Club; Kevin, Greg and Bryan Dalcourt of Pa Pa's Catering; Patrick Gabriel of Sodexho; Michael Hebert of Hedgehog's Kitchen; Lonnie Pope from Townhouse Restaurant; Keith Sonnier of The Ballroom; and independent contractors Eleanor Curol and Kim Viator.
Of course Party Girl swooned over the beautifully displayed food, which also served to whet my appetite for the beautiful original jewelry pieces designed and fabricated by the instructors and students of LTC Campus Jewelry Manufacturing department. They were part of the silent auction, and KLFY TV-10 news anchor Darla Montgomery served as mistress of ceremonies. Guests enjoyed the musical entertainment of Louisiana Rhythm Katz and a performance by special guest and Tina Turner tribute artist Connie Garrett. The event was a triumph, with proceeds of the evening being dedicated to funding the greatest needs of the LTC Greater Acadiana Region campuses. The night was definitely a success story!
