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.
