Meet the New Culinary Dean, Chef Francine Marz
Chef Marz has over 30 years of industry experience, most recently serving as Culinary Director for Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. While at Northampton, Marz oversaw the renovation of the school’s student-run restaurant, culinary kitchen and related facilities. She also headed up the college’s culinary program overseeing faculty, catering and students in the program.
Marz replaces Chef Miles Huff who retired in June, after working to launch the Culinary Institute of the South, which opened in November of 2021.
“I’m very excited about the building and all the potential opportunities that are here,” said Chef Marz. “The team at the culinary school and the college itself were just the right fit.” >Learn more here.
