Whos in the Kitchen? Learn how art and culinary converge

Paducah, Kentucky (June 28, 2016) - Cooking is an art, but all art requires knowing something about the techniques and materials, said Nathan Myhrvold, coauthor of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking and Modernist Cuisine at Home. Myhrvold isnt the only one who understands why cooking is an art. Beginning July 21, West Kentucky Community and Technical College is melding art and cooking into unique kitchen experiences with local artists.
