On Tuesday evening at the Raleigh Convention Center, students from Wake Tech's Culinary Program were showing off their cooking, baking, cake decorating and ice carving skills. As part of the entrance fee to the event, one received coupons that could be exchanged for samples of the many different foods being prepared. I was part of the large crowd that showed up to partake.
