Culinary Arts Technology


Our Culinary Arts Technology concentration provides a solid foundation in the methods and science of cooking through exposure to classical, American, and international cuisine, as well as the art of baking and pastries. Special emphasis is placed on culinary tools, equipment, techniques, and specialty ingredients. The heart of our Culinary Arts Technology program is hands-on lab instruction by a chef instructor in a commercial kitchen.

In our program, you will be responsible for your tool/knife kit and will be given full access to a variety of commercial kitchen equipment including convection ovens, commercial ranges, large-scale mixers, pizza/stone ovens, steamers, pasta rollers, warmers, ice-cream makers, and more.

No matter what your goals are, Hinds Community College is the place to begin your culinary journey. You’ll learn to cultivate your skills and passion for food as you get the hands-on experience and training necessary to thrive in the industry. Successful completion of the two-year program leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree in Culinary Arts. Additionally, completing our program will make you eligible to obtain ServSafe Sanitation certification from the National Restaurant Association.
