Student chefs are set to prepare a six-course meal as part of their training at Riverside City College's Culinary Academy.
The annual event will be held Oct. 21, in Riverside.
The cooking school is well known in the Inland Empire, and often the program has far more student applications than it can accept. The "2011 California Autumn Nights Annual Fundraiser" is a chance for the class to serve a complex meal to a large group of diners.
