Peoria Café Brevé – New Partnership with “Culinary Arts”
We have partnered with our Culinary program to provide you with bakery treats on Tuesday & Thursdays as well as a hot entree on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 am to noon for just $4.95. Each week they are providing us with a soup of the week. So far we have had potato leek, bison chili and tomato.

This partnership gives our culinary students a chance to serve guests a wonderful meal from their classes. Campus Dining can serve a quality meal to their guests at a reasonable price.

The baked goods from the culinary bakery class will vary so you need to stop by and check out what goodies we received each week.

Culinary meals from the past two weeks:

  1. Roasted leg of lamb, rosemary salt, roasted garlic mash, vegetable skewer, and North Georgia candy roaster squash puree, balsamic reduction, and horseradish demi.
  2. Pork skewers with creamy polenta and roasted carrots.

Meals coming in the weeks ahead:

Week of Nov 8 and 9 – Beef

Week of Nov 29 and 30 – Fish

Week of Dec 6 and 7 – Poultry

Veterans Day: Nov 11
(Campus Dining to Celebrate Nov 9th)

Interesting Fact:

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

Campus Dining will be honoring our veterans on Thursday November 9th with a $7.00 voucher towards a meal in our Campus Dining location.

Main Entree:  Fiesta salad, Corn, and Chicken noodle soup

Thanksgiving: Celebrated Nov.  23 (Campus Dining to Celebrate on Nov 16)

Interesting facts:

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

Campus Dining will serve our traditional Thanksgiving meal on Thursday November 16th.  We will be serving all for just $4.95: oven roast turkey, creamy mash potatoes, a savory stuffing and green beans.  Dinner roll and cranberry sauce will also be a part of this traditional meal.
The meal will be served in the Trés Café and at our Peoria Café Brevé location.  The Peoria location will be selling meal tickets in advance, meal will be available 11am to 1pm or until we are sold out.

National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month

Interesting Fact:

There is evidence that ancient South American Inca Indians were the first to grind peanuts to make peanut butter. In the United States, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (of cereal fame) invented a version of peanut butter in 1895. Then it is believed that a St. Louis physician may have developed a version of peanut butter as a protein substitute for his older patients who had poor teeth and couldn’t chew meat. Peanut butter was first introduced at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904.

Get some Peanut butter at the grill at Campus Dining Trés Café or the Peoria Café Brevé.
