District 21 opens its doors one night a month through May to allow its students to get hands-on experience with some of the most inspired culinary minds in the city. Attendees work directly with chef Russ Johnson and learn about the ingredients and flavors that inspire him and how he runs his kitchen at Ludivine, the farm-to-fork restaurant he owns with fellow chef Jonathon Stranger.
Seating times are every 30 minutes from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at District 21 inside Francis Tuttle Technology Center, 12777 N. Rockwell Ave. Tickets are $50. For more information, call 717-4944 or visit francistuttle.edu/district21. — Gazette staff
