KNOXVILLE — A variety of fruit flavors will enhance the international fare at the Ready for the World Café at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, the week of Nov. 9.

The menu will include chicken a l’orange; sauteed tilapia with mushroom sauce and fried spinach; pork tenderloin with cranberry dressing; portabello mushroom Parmesan; loaded-potato soup; braised fall vegetables with red wine sauce; and green-and-yellow bean salad with tomato dressing and feta cheese.

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 Lindsey French, of Memphis, a senior in nutrition. She’s worked at Trio on Market Square, Curves and currently is interning for Knoxville Parks and Recreation planning a children’s after-school nutrition program called Nutrition Exercise and Activity Training (NEAT). She plans to complete a dietetic internship after graduation, get her registered dietitian’s license and work as a dietitian in a children’s hospital.
