The Colorado Culinary Academy
When I realized I wanted to go back to school and learn more about cooking, I found out that our local college has a culinary program. I owe a lot to the Colorado Culinary Academy at Mesa State College, Grand Junction, Colorado. If it was not for this program, I doubt if Decadence Gourmet Cheesecakes would have been born!
