Bringing A Culinary Arts School To Ketchum
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The College of Southern Idaho has been working with some partners in Ketchum to bring about a culinary arts school.
It would be called the "Culinarium" and they've created partnerships with a dozen restaurants and other businesses.
CSI Spokesman Doug Maughan says they've applied for a Department of Labor grant for more than $600,000.
This would be in addition to what CSI and the partners have put in. It helps pay for start–up costs.
Mayor Randy Hall, City of Ketchum adds, "the reality is we've been working with the College of Southern Idaho for several years and they've hired executive directors, we're very excited about that partnership. The ability of bringing the College of Southern Idaho into Ketchum and make Ketchum a college town is really quite an achievement."
"Right now we don't have a location, we're still scouting out locations, but we think this would be wonderful for the Wood River Valley economy, for students, for the entire image of that area and that's a good outreach for CSI to be doing," adds Doug Maughan, College of Southern Idaho.
The college is looking towards the fall of 2014 to have the "Culinarium" up and running.
