SUNY Adirondack's new culinary arts facility opens in Glens Falls

SUNY Adirondack's new culinary arts facility opens in Glens Falls

Facility will include student-run restaurant, bakery

GLENS FALLS -- SUNY Adirondack's new Culinary Arts Center has opened on Hudson Avenue.

The 8,100 square foot facility was built at a cost of approximately $1.9 million. It will allow SUNY Adirondack to double its program enrollment, according to a prepared statement. 

The project was supported by $600,000 from the city’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative funding and a $500,000 capital grant from ESD.

"We are very excited to expand our program offerings and join the vibrancy of downtown Glens Falls," said SUNY Adirondack President Kristine Duffy, in a prepared statement. "We will be training the region’s hospitality workforce and partnering with downtown businesses for internships, and local farmers and food purveyors to source our food and beverages.

"Having a downtown site will also allow us to offer unique food and beverage related events and other continuing education experiences for the community."

The Center will educate students in all aspects of culinary arts. A teaching kitchen will enable hands-on demonstrations, and Seasoned, a 100-seat student-run restaurant, is scheduled to open in October, providing firsthand experience in all facets of kitchen and dining management. 

A bake shop will offer breads, bagels, cakes, pies and cookies, and a gluten-free kitchen will be available to support a growing need for alternative baked goods.
