The culinary arts are one of the most creative and delicious crafts that an individual can learn. Nowhere is there a better place to learn this art then LCCC’s NOSH ‘18. This year, LCCC’s culinary program held its 2nd annual event showcasing a number of live cooking performances, music, as well as beer and wine tasting. LCCC’s culinary program is a well-established program that provides opportunities and experiences to its students and community. The NOSH 18 event was held September 21st in the Spitzer Conference Center. 

An all-access wristband was available and allowed access to all of NOSH 18’s events including food tastings, food truck vendors, and the live demonstrations. Proceeds from the wristbands will go towards the community college’s food pantry, the Commodore Cupboard. The LCCC Cupboard continues its fight against food insecurity on campus and throughout Lorain County. 

The event had demonstrations with several cooks and students demonstrating their food skills. “It was very interesting to get out here to see what these young adults are able to do,” said Denise Diluciano, community member. 

The culinary department  hosted these cooking demonstrations to promote cooking classes. The culinary department  has classes open for the public to sign up for. “I loved the cooking preparations,” said Diluciano, “Chuck and I have already signed up to one of the cooking classes LCCC had to offer.”  For more information about NOSH, the culinary department, or cooking classes open to the public, please visit the official homepage at
