KNOXVILLE — The Ready for the World Café, the international buffet run by students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, resumes this week with a “Taste of the South.”

The menu will include chicken and dumplings, Southern-style greens, cornbread, white bean and vegetable soup, grilled corn, scalloped potatoes, coleslaw and pulled-pork barbecue.

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.

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.

However, because of Spring Break, the March 15-18 menu was developed by Aramark chefs.
