KNOXVILLE — The Ready for the World Café will offer a world of flavors this week, with dishes from Italy, France and the American southwest.

The menu includes chicken scampi, wild mushroom lasagna, Dauphinoise potatoes, honey Dijon pork loin, southwestern black bean soup, pan-roasted cod with bacon and garlic, and Caprese salad.

This week, the Ready for the World Café will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday in the Hermitage Room on the third floor of the University Center. The café will be closed Thursday so students involved can attend a career fair.

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 enrolled in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism (HRT) 445, the advanced food production and service management class, plan and operate the café. ARAMARK, UT’s provider of dining services, prepares the food. The HRT students worked together to select recipes and design this week’s menu.
