  • Park City Culinary Institute

Ski Town Cooking School
Laurie Moldawer, who trained in the culinary arts at Le Cordon Blue in Paris, has launched a culinary school in Park City. The Park City Culinary Institute ( will offer an eight-week, 160-credit-hour professional certificate program requiring no previous experience. “Most culinary schools take longer and are more expensive,” Moldawer says. “We’re offering a high-quality experience at a lower cost, with a shorter time commitment, in a world-class resort destination.” According to Moldawer, the program’s graduates “will always be known for their skill levels—other schools have gotten too big, or too caught up with federal funding, to keep high standards.” The two-month course will run $4,995, and the culinary faculty includes well-known Utah chefs Houman Gohary, Jerry Garcia, Yu Yamamoto and Scott Boberek.
