Former GNTC Culinary Arts staff prepare and deliver service to waiting patrons at a Woodlee Building function on the Floyd County Campus in Rome, Georgia.

(Rome, Georgia) – It’s summertime at Georgia Northwestern Technical College!

Warmer temperatures and a brand new semester means it’s time for all GNTC’ers to sample the culinary work of GNTC Culinary Arts Director Chef Greg Paulson and his program.

Every Friday at lunch, beginning May 20, the Culinary Arts staff will prepare an “American Regional Cuisine Buffet” for all GNTC faculty, staff, students, and friends for the bargain basement price of $6! Only checks or cash will be accepted as payment.
