Culinary Arts teaches the fundamentals of cooking. Some students attend this program to learn how to cook, others are considering being a professional chef and attend the program to explore careers in the Culinary Arts field, and still others hope to own their own restaurant someday.
The first year is about many areas of service. Service starts in the kitchen with assembling orders. Learn a variety of skills, such as safety and sanitation, knife cuts, plus customer service and interacting with community members.
The second year is more about preparing food for the restaurant and catering events. Sometimes we have to follow very specific preparation instructions. We are more independent with the jobs we are assigned.
You can become a chef, pastry chef, food blogger, food critic, food photographer, or nutritionist, among other careers.
Being in Culinary Arts can open many doors because of everything you can do with the experience and skills.
