The dining team at Mississippi State University in Mississippi State, Miss., is hosting a chef pop-up event at one of its dining halls.
Chef Mason Garcia will be at the school’s Fresh Food Company dining hall where he will serve his take on shrimp and grits which includes seared Gulf shrimp in tasso cream gravy, smoked gouda cheese grits and sweet and sour collard greens.
The pop-up will only last a day. Chef Garcia is currently the Senior Executive Chef at Southeastern Louisiana University.
Dining teams at other colleges are also using pop-up events to engage students this semester. At North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C., students were treated to a vegan pop-up hosted by celebrity chef Dustin Harder last month.
