100% of Proceeds from Every Student Pop-up Benefit NOCHI’s Scholarship Fund
NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Culinary & Hospitality Institute (NOCHI) today announced reservations are now open to the public for Basil, a celebration of diversity, but also of common threads, brought to you by the Summer 2022 cohort of Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts students. One hundred percent of proceeds from this and every student pop-up benefit NOCHI’s Scholarship Fund.
A culinary journey around the globe, Basil draws inspiration from the Far East to the Mediterranean. Basil’s menu features appetizers and main courses such as basil corn fritters, cashew-crusted salmon and an umami mushroom burger. Many dishes can be prepared vegetarian, vegan or pescatarian.
Before NOCHI Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts students complete their 100-day certifications, they create a pop-up café as a capstone course. This original concept is dreamed up and executed entirely by students as a culmination of everything they’ve learned at NOCHI and as a way of connecting with industry leaders, prospective employers, family, and friends.
NOCHI offers certificate programs in culinary arts and baking & pastry arts that cover twenty-five subjects and 650 hours of intensive hands-on instruction.
NOCHI’s Scholarship Fund exists to support our beloved city’s hospitality industry: storied, irreplaceable, irreplicable, and central to us all. A driver of economic prosperity. A spirit and essence of being a New Orleanian or loving New Orleans.
