SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah Technical College's Culinary Institute of Savannah is taking preorders for Bistro Savoir meals featuring desserts and artisan breads for Thanksgiving.

Bistro Savoir features meals made with local ingredients, under the direction of Chef Jean Vendeville, world renowned pastry chef and department head for culinary arts at STC.

Online pre-order sales are available through November 21, or when quantities are sold out.

Desserts include: cookies (cowboy, peanut butter), pies (pumpkin, pecan, blondie spiced apple), tarte pure caraibe, red velvet cake, tiramisu, raspberry chocolate mousse tart, dark and white chocolate mousse cake and harvest apple cheesecake. Artisan breads will include muffins (pumpkin, raspberry), dinner rolls, San Francisco sourdough bread, tarte flambé, apple fan tan, many seeds German bread, cabernet blue cheese walnut bread, challah and miche (a six-pound savory loaf). Blended butter spreads are also available.

Orders will be available for pickup at the College's campuses in Savannah, Liberty and Effingham on Tuesday, November 26. For a pick-up schedule, a complete list of items for sale and to place orders, visit www.bistrosavoir.com.

Proceeds from the sale will go toward the purchase of a commercial wood-fired oven that will be used in the College's baking and pastry program. The previous Bistro Savoir sales have raised more than $7,500 toward this oven, which will be large enough to accommodate seven 16" pizzas at once, but Vendeville plans to use it for baking bread.
