Culinary institute debuts new program

The Park City Culinary Institute has unveiled a new six-month program designed to be more comprehensive than the school’s two-month program. According to a press release, students will participate in exchange programs with local restaurants in order to finish the program debt-free and ready to start their culinary careers. "The restaurants love this, because they need ambitious and trained talent, and that talent often needs money for school," said Laurie Moldawer, founder of the institute, in the release. "It’s a win-win for both students and the hospitality industry." For more information, visit culinaryschoolutah.com.
