This past Saturday, the group gave a sneak preview of the goods they'll be cooking up in the fall by catering to over 1,000 students on the Columbia lawn. Ricotta and Chorizo Crostini, Pear and Gorgonzola Crostini, Sauteed Eggplant Kabobs, and Chocolate Mascarpone Cake were a few of the items served. [EaterWire]
