Colorado Mountain College culinary arts program offering new sustainable cuisine degree

The culinary arts program at Colorado Mountain College, a college with 11 locations in western Colorado, is offering a new Associate of Applied Science degree in sustainable cuisine. The degree that’s being launched this fall semester is an extension of the college’s current three certificates in sustainable cuisine at the campus in Edwards, west of Vail.
