Southern dishes, success on NDSCS culinary arts students’ menu

Grace Stumpf, a second year culinary arts student at NDSCS, was a waitress Tuesday night at the student-run 6th Street Eatery. She's seen serving bananas Foster. Sweet treats are natural for Stumpf, who hopes to further a cupcake business.

Feasting his eyes on the smoked pork belly with soy garlic sauce and pickled red onion, smothered pork chop with mushroom and onion gravy, mashed potatoes and collard greens and bananas Foster with pecans, a bourbon rum sauce and buttermilk ice cream, Dylan McArthur was impressed.

McArthur is a second year culinary arts student at North Dakota State College of Science. Tuesday, Jan. 19 was both the second night of the 6th Street Eatery’s 2023 season and the first night with student-created specialties of the house. The 6th Street Eatery, located within NDSCS’ Hektner Student Center, currently has a Southern hospitality theme. No matter if guests dine in or receive takeout, the culinary arts students would like them to “All come back now, ya hear?”
