WCCC culinary, viticulture programs team up for special Valentine’s Day dinner

The Culinary Arts program and the Viticulture and Enology program at Western Colorado Community College are joining forces to offer a very special Valentine’s Day dinner to area couples.

The Valentine’s Day Wine Pairing Dinner will feature a three-course menu of a beef and foie gras appetizer, salad and salmon entrée. Each course will be paired with two distinct wines that highlight different characteristics in the food. At the end of the meal, diners will receive a box of hand-made chocolates to enjoy right there or to take home for later.

Assistant Technical Professor of Culinary Arts Jonathan St. Peter developed each course of the menu. Technical Instructor of Viticulture and Enology Jenne Baldwin-Eaton selected the wines.

The dinner is $60 per person, with proceeds benefiting the scholarship funds for each of the programs. A maximum of 60 tickets will be sold. Tickets may be purchased at

Dinner begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday, Feb. 14, at Chez Lena restaurant in Building B at WCCC, 2508 Blichmann Ave.
