Prince George’s County, Maryland, is now home to the region’s hottest restaurant kitchen. But diners be warned: There’s no menu, just a course catalog.
After three years of planning, one year of construction and a $20 million investment from Prince George’s County, the Culinary Arts Center at Prince George’s Community College is open.
The 21,351-square-foot facility includes three instructional restaurant-scale kitchens, classroom space and event space. There’s also a community kitchen where home cooks can sharpen their knives and their roasting, baking and wine-pairing skills.
The 60-year-old academic institution launched its culinary arts program about a decade ago, but Prince George’s Community College President Charlene Dukes said with the area’s booming food and hospitality industry, it was time to take it to the next level.
