If you’ve ever wanted to be involved in the culinary world, be it a pastry chef, saucier or executive chef, the culinary program at Pima Community College’s Desert Vista Campus has all you need.

On Oct. 26, the culinary program held an open invitational to the program, showcasing work from chefs working at the college and throughout Tucson.
