Oklahoma Restaurant Association - Event Information
Odyssey de Culinaire
Odyssey de Culinaire is a fundraising and awareness dinner to benefit Student Programs within the Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation. This ever-popular event, which is open to the public, features 2 great evenings of dining with many of Tulsa and Oklahoma City's finest chefs being featured in their home cities. Each of the five courses features a chef mentoring a culinary student to treat attendees to an incredible five-course meal.
The chefs are paired in their course preparation with high school students who are currently active in ProStart® schools in Oklahoma. Funds raised from the event are used to provide support to students, teachers, and schools who are part of Student Programs, including teacher training and development, materials and resources for student recruitment, assistance with job placement for internships, graduate employment, and industry-driven events for hospitality students.
Experience an energetic evening and make an impact on culinary education in Oklahoma! Join us for one or both Odyssey de Culinaires - the Oklahoma Restaurant Association's only event open to the public!
The 2017 Odyssey de Culinaire dinners will be held July 20, 2017 at the Renaissance Tulsa Hotel & Conference Center and July 27, 2017 at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City.
