The one-year diploma program for aspiring bakers will focus on breads and pastries. Students will learn how to use baking equipment and develop recipes with a focus on fresh ingredients and nutrition, the release says.
The program was established with a gift from the Helen Diehl estate. Helen and her husband, John Diehl, were Newton residents.
The Iowa Culinary Institute is DMACC's two-year culinary arts program located at the Ankeny campus.
The School of Baking and Pastry will be announced Tuesday during the Newton campus' annual holiday celebration from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the DMACC Conference Center, 600 N. 2nd Ave. W. in Newton. It is open to the public.
