A tasty Lunar New Year

Renton Technical College got a tasty start to the new year with the 2020 Celebrity Chef event, that featured a Lunar New Year performance of the Lion Dance from The International Lion Dance and Martial Arts Team, Jan. 28. Guests also had appetizers made by RTC students and a multicourse meal from Chef Angie Mar with the help of students. Advanced Sommelier Christopher Chan was the emcee and helped pair the courses with different wines.
