CVTC Culinary Management facility ready for use

Eau Claire (WQOW) – CVTC’s new Culinary Management facility is officially open and awaiting use for the next academic year, which is just days away.

This $3-million facility is a combination of a lecture room and a kitchen, and there is enough space to allow 26 students to cook. In CVTC’s old facility, only up to 12 students could use the space.

There are monitors and cameras built into the rooms for live demonstrations, video recordings for student use, and even a chance for the community to benefit. Faculty said the cameras will also be used to share cooking tips with locals, but that’s not the only benefit for Eau Claire and surrounding areas.

"The experience here is unlike no other," said Kevin Brown, CVTC chef instructor. "We feel fully backed by our equipment and our experiences to teach students what they need to know to go out and be employed and help our local economy out."

Joanne Palzkill is co-owner of two Eau Claire restaurants, Draganetti’s and Za 51, and was at the tour on Friday. Palzkill said the facility is a long awaited resource. She said they haven’t had a lot of interested or qualified applicants to work in their kitchens, but this facility could change that.

Weather Outlook: Still slippery tonight, sunshine returns tomorrow

Drizzle picked back up this afternoon, and much like yesterday froze to untreated surfaces. The good news is the salt and sand put down yesterday is still working, and many municipalities were out again putting down more today. Still, any small stretch of even main roads where salt and/or sand have washed away from cars driving over it could quickly develop slippery spots from this very thin layer of ice
