The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park is an amazing place.  This week the 800 seat Marriott Pavilion opened at the CIA.  It cost $19 million to build and it will host world famous chef's teaching students how to become masters of their art. Ferran Adria was there for the opening.  He is a rock star in the culinary world.  If you have never dined at one of the campus restaurants, please put it on your Hudson Valley bucket list.  The CIA is just another reason why it's so great to live here!
