The Chef Artist Series is a Harrah Hotel College dining event that gives students opportunities to learn culinary and hospitality techniques from professional chefs as they work together to create a gourmet dinner adapted from the guest chef's restaurant.
In its seventh installment, Chef Artist Series students will work with world-renowned French chef Jo?l Robuchon, Claude Le-Tohic, executive chef of Jo?l Robuchon at MGM; Matt Seeber, executive chef of Tom Colicchio's Crafsteak at MGM; and Steve Hopcraft, executive chef of Michael Mina's Seablue at MGM. Students help prepare a four-course dinner for more than 100 guests at a reception of hors d'oeuvres, wine and entertainment open to the public. The event also raises money to fund students' scholarships and help pays for training and professional development needs for food and beverage professors.
