Culinary - Baking - Pastry - Hospitality Management Schools in Tallahassee
Tallahassee is the capital of Florida and is located in the central part of the the state's northern panhandle. As far as business goes, it is a major distribution point for local agriculture, livestock and lumber industry.
The name comes from a Moskogean Indian word meaning "old town" or "abandoned fields". It was founded in 1824 and was selected as the capital of Florida because it is roughly centered between Pensacola and St. Augustine.Attending school for the culinary arts, baking/pastry or hospitality management is a great step forward in your career.
