Lunch with the Chefs (LWTC) is a theme lunch hosted at the IMU that is open to the public. When LWTC was first introduced in 1995, by Chef Barry Greenberg, it was originally intended to be a pop up lunch in River Room for around 50 guests, but 120 guests attended. Due to the high demand, LWTC became a monthly event for several years. Overtime, more and more people became interested and the event was relocated to the IMU Main Lounge. LWTC now hosts three events during the year for 400+ guests. The most recent LWTC theme was The Best of the 60s, 70s, and 80s,which featured a menu of deviled eggs, wedge salad, beef wellington, clover leaf rolls and bananas foster.
