Our delivering culinary arts scholarships for the Southern California Restaurant Writers 'Doris Crandall Scholarship Fund, continued yesterday when we visited Riverside Community College. There we met with Bob Moghaddam, director of the school's culinary arts program to present him with a check for student scholarships.
The college culinary arts program includes a cafe at the school manned completely by students both in the kitchen and dining room.
The cafe is open for breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and for lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday thru Friday. It is open to the public.
Jim Woodin, president of the Writers, and I enjoyed an excellent lunch while meeting with Chef Bob. I opened with a very good tortilla soup, then the baked cod with creamed spinach and oven browned potatoes. And raspberry pie for dessert. Prices are most modest and the quality and service outstanding.
The Cafe is located at 1155 Spruce Street in Riverside with free off street parking. For more information call 951 955-2271.
