Fall 2016 International Dinners

The HRTM International Dinner Series is one of the most gourmet dining experiences you can have in Las Cruces. Held on Thursday nights, your evening starts at 6:00 pm with a wine tasting and hors d'oeuvre reception in our Bobby Lee Lawrence Academy of Wine. Then dinner starts in 100 West Café at 6:30 pm. All are five course meals with specially paired wines. The dinners cost $62.50 per person.

The dates and themes for the International Dinners are:
September 15 – German
October 6 – French
October 27 – Italian*
November 17 - California

*As part of the Gerald Thomas Chair program, on October 27, there will be a very special international dinner. This fine dining Italian meal will feature the award winning wines of Banfi Family Vintners. Mr. Bill Whiting, Banfi Director of Wine Education, will host the dinner and provide tasting notes on the wine pairings.

Please stay tuned for more details about the menus and wine pairings for each dinner.

If you have attended one of the international dinners in the past, you know they are very popular—almost literally the “hottest ticket” in town. As a result, we have developed a plan to make the purchase of dinner tickets as easy and equitable as possible. Please come in person to Gerald Thomas Hall Rm. 138 starting on Friday, August 26, 2016 at 9 am to purchase your ticket(s). Payment must be made the day dinner tickets are purchased – there are no refunds. For more information about reservations, please call the department office at (575) 646-5995.
