Park City Culinary Institute expands
The Park City Culinary Institute has expanded into Salt Lake City. According to a press release, the institute opened a new location on State Street in Salt Lake, easing the travel burdens on the students who come from all over the Wasatch Front. The institute will retain its space at the Deer Valley Club for catered events and team-building programs, but nearly all of the certificate programs will be held at the new location. "It's remarkable how many students have driven up to Deer Valley since we opened in 2013," said Laurie Moldawar, founder of the institute. "After graduating dozens of students over the years, we knew exactly what type of facility we wanted, and that Salt Lake City was the place."
