If you've ever dreamed of becoming a chef, baker, food stylist, or launching some other culinary career, here's your chance to meet with representatives of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. to learn about the school's programs and scholarship availability.
The well-known culinary school is hosting a reception at 6 p.m. Tuesday Oct. 22 in Wells for both traditional college students and folks who are looking for a career change. The reception will be held at Varano's, 60 Miles Road. The restaurant is owed by a CIA graduate, Richard Varano.
If you attend the reception and then decide to enroll, your college application fee will be waived.
Look at all the toques at this year's graduation:
The CIA is offering $3.6 million in new scholarships for the 2013-14 academic year. The school offers associate degrees in culinary arts as well as baking and pastry arts, and bachelor's degrees in culinary management, baking and pastry management, and culinary science. Students may also pursue concentrations in beverage management, farm-to-table cooking, and Latin cuisines.
