KNOXVILLE — Food and photos are on the menu at the Ready for the World Café the week of Feb. 15.

The international buffet’s menu will include orange peel chicken, spiced squash and goat cheese salad, eggplant and spinach lasagna, salmon in a lemon cream sauce, Mexican pork chops, bacon smashed potatoes, and Tuscan vegetable soup.

The café also will feature photography by Juliet Lee, a junior in studio arts.

The Ready for the World Café will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each 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. The Ready for the World Café accepts dining dollars and All Star, and faculty and staff can use ARAMARK’s UT Reward Card to receive a 15 percent discount.

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

HRT 445 student Holly Phillippi, of Gallatin, is this week’s café manager. She is a junior in nutrition with a minor hotel, restaurant and tourism management with a concentration in pre-med. She plans to go to medical school and become a doctor.
