Welcome to the Culinary Arts program. The culinary arts industry is an exciting and constantly changing field. In this program you will learn how to cook in and manage a kitchen professionally. We will cover safety/sanitation practices, hone knife skills and basic to advanced food preparation.

These skills will be put to the test through real life scenarios – like serving the general public. It is an intense program – much like the industry itself. It has it’s challenges and rewards.  Do not be confused with home economics – this is culinary arts.
