KNOXVILLE — “Warming up for Winter” will be the theme of the Ready for the World Café the week of Oct. 26 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The buffet’s menu will feature a variety of international “comfort foods,” including chicken paella, pork with roasted vegetables, sour cream and chive mashed potatoes, seafood chowder, grilled corn with honey and pine nuts, cheesy cream spinach and Mandarin chicken pasta salad.

The Ready for the World Café is open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday in the Hermitage Room on the third floor of the University Center.

Diners pay $11 for the all-you-can-eat buffet or $9 for a plate of food to carry out.

Faculty and staff can use ARAMARK’s new UT Reward Card to receive a 15 percent discount at the café.

Students in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism (HRT) 445, an advanced food production and service management class, plan the menu and operate the café; ARAMARK, UT’s provider of dining services, prepares the food.

This week’s café manager from HRT 445 is Aaron O’Connor. A Maryville native, O’Connor is a junior in HRT management who hopes to one day open and run a successful restaurant.
