Tocci. “Honing their skills and knowledge, the students are excited to present a pop-up brunch to connect to the community, and one day soon enter the valley or elsewhere hospitality workforce to create a memorable dining experience.”

The buffet items will include an omelet station with a choice of mushrooms, onion, tomato, spinach, ham and cheddar cheese and a carving station of roasted pork loin. The buffet will also include French toast, sage sausage, bacon, roasted fingerling potatoes, rice pilaf and sautéed mixed vegetables with a citronette citrus dressing.
