LANSDALE, Pa. (CBS) — The culinary program at Montgomery County Community College is expanding.

Chef Christopher Tanner, director of the new Culinary Arts Institute at MCCC in Lansdale, says ground was recently broken on the school.

Currently, culinary students take classes on different campuses; he says once the new culinary building is built, the classes will be consolidated.

“The school is not just going to be a culinary program just for culinary students,” he tells KYW Newsradio.  “We are going to have an associate program of baking and pastry, and then a certificate of baking and pastry and culinary.  But we’re also going to have professional development for chefs.  We’re also going to offer accreditation through the American Culinary Federation.”

The building is expected to be built by January 2013.

“The developer is putting up the funds up front for us for building the program, and what we’re entering into is a 10-year lease so that lease will end up going into the cost of the program,” Tanner explains.

He says the curriculum is being developed now: “The curriculum and everything starts in Fall 2013.”
