Students will soon be able to explore culinary opportunities like never before at Central Oregon Community College.   The new building for the Cascade Culinary Institute is under construction at COCC; and even though a bond measure passed in November, COCC President Jim Middleton says the money came from a campaign conducted by the COCC Foundation. He says they have great plans for how the money will be spent: "We'll have three large instructional kitchens.  A general purpose that will support our dining lab. We think it’s important that students not just cook the food but they learn how to operate a small restaurant.  We we’ll have a baking kitchen, totally dedicated to the baking industry that we’ve not had before.  And then we’ll have a third kitchen, I call it the switch hitter kitchen that can either operate in the baking arena or in the general food prep." The layout for one of the kitchens’ makes learning more 'palatable' for both students and instructors. "Also in there for both the students and the general public. It doesn't mean everyone's got to grow up around the stove to see what's going on."  The Culinary Building is scheduled to be open by this fall.
