COA Culinary Arts Students Work with Visiting Chef

Edenton, NC – College of The Albemarle (COA) students in the Culinary Arts program at the Edenton-Chowan Campus had the unique experience of working with visiting Chef Ricky Moore during his time in the Edenton-Chowan area. Chef Moore, founder/owner of the Saltbox Seafood Joint in Durham, was on campus for an event sponsored by the Edenton Racial Reconciliation Group and COA’s Culinary Arts department. He spoke about his path to becoming a chef and the culinary arts students prepared his signature “Hush-Honeys” recipe for attendees of the event.
