Culinary Arts Series 2023

The Hammond Regional Arts Center is excited to present the 2023 Culinary Arts Series beginning on May, 15. The event will take place at the state-of-the-art demonstration facility and dining-room of Alack Culinary Equipment Superstore located just east of Downtown Hammond on 17420 Highway 190. Culinary Arts Series is a signature fundraising event for the Arts Center that features an intimate dining experience while watching live demonstrations from guest chefs.

Each year, the HRAC coordinates with regional restaurants to bring a one-of-a-kind culinary experience for patrons. Each event will begin at 6 p.m. and the chef will start the presentation at 6:30 p.m. During the event, each chef will prepare an appetizer, an entrée and a dessert while demonstrating their culinary techniques to attendees. Complimentary wine will be provided with each meal.
