THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Randy Cheramie (SHEHR’ uh mee), executive director of the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute, says it’s a dream come true.

The Lanny D. Ledet (luh-DAY’) Culinary Arts Building, the institute’s new home, is located on eight acres near Louisiana Highway 1 and Bowie Road in Thibodaux and is being counted on by Nicholls State University officials to help spur enrollment growth.

The Daily Comet reports (https://bit.ly/1gGjHct) the culinary department started moving into the $12.6 million, 33,000-square-foot building on May 20, shortly after construction finished.

For the last several years, the institute had been split among two buildings.

The Ledet Building is equipped with six kitchens, three classrooms and a dedicated student study area.
