Experience Gourmet Delights At Des Moines Area Community College

If you’re planning to visit Des Moines, Iowa between September and May, you might want to consider dining at the Iowa Culinary Institute at Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC).  As part of the DMACC Culinary Arts program, students invite the public to dine with them or to participate in special events run by the College’s staff and students throughout term time. 

Unforgettable dining experiences

Join the students and staff as they prepare, cook and serve a world-class gourmet meal for you.  These evening meals are all themed and are a real hallmark of the Culinary Arts program.  Lunch is also available on weekdays in the college Bistro

The real jewel in the crown of the DMACC program is the French Chef's Exchange Gourmet Dinner Experience.  These exquisite dinners are part of the college’s international culinary exchange program and are prepared by students together with chefs from St. Etienne, France.

Opening times and reservations

The Ici Bistro is open for visitors to enjoy a gourmet dinner or lunch experience during the spring and autumn terms.  You’ll need to make a reservation as the students’ culinary efforts are extremely popular and both the Bistro and the gourmet dinner experience do get busy.

The college reconvenes in September and is open for dining right through until the end of April.  Full details of menus, special events and availability can be found on the campus’ website.

Bistro Lunch Hours:  Tuesdays - Fridays: 11:15am to 12:45pm

Bistro Dinner Hours: Tuesdays & Wednesdays: 5:00pm to 6:45pm

Call the college on 515-964-6369 to reserve your table for lunch or dinner.

In conclusion

If you plan to visit Des Moines during the school year between September and the end of April, dining at the Iowa Culinary Institute at Des Moines Area Community College is a true gourmet experience you must not miss!
