I don't know if this will help you or not, but I was in an apparently similar situation and contacted the university where I got my undergrad degree; their Family and Consumer Sciences dept. was willing to work with me to create a Masters program in Foods. I plan to go more into the food writing/cookbook realm of culinary arts, but they were more than willing to work with me, as is the local technical shcool that offers a culinary arts program. Maybe that approach,or something similar, would work for you. Try contacting a unvisersity and see what they offer, you may be surprised. I was.
