Northern Michigan University's Hospitality Management Program will host a seven-course Legacy Dinner fine-dining experience at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 19, in the North Fork, NMU's Teaching Kitchen. NMU's ceramics program will collaborate by creating the first pieces of the North Fork's tableware series, which will be featured at the event. 

The Legacy Dinner will showcase the works of student-elected Executive Chef Trixie Maguran Jacobson, who is seeking certification through the American Culinary Federation, and Sous Chef Orion Ingmire of the events management course. 

Non-alcoholic beverage service and pairings will accompany recipes developed throughout these chefs' educational experiences.

The tentative primary menu features an apple dumpling amuse bouche, a Japgokbap stack appetizer, blood orange and beets salad, red snapper in chraime entree, evercrisp sorbet intermezzo, Beef Wellington entree, and carrot halwa dessert. A secondary menu option aims to meet dietary/allergen needs.

Both menus can be viewed on the NMU ticketing website. The event is limited to 36 tickets, which can be purchased for $125.

The Legacy Dinner is part of this year's event series, developed by the events management course in the Hospitality Leadership department. All events in the course are student-led and planned, from menu creation and cooking to decor and entertainment components.
