You’ll learn about purchasing, nutrition and how to prepare a mouthwatering variety of entrees, desserts, and cuisines. You also have the opportunity to learn about catering, menu development and effective management skills. Some CUA classes take place in the classroom or online, but most CUA classes are hands-on and take place in our newly renovated kitchen.
