Hands-On Learning

The 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 the Culinary Arts Technology program is hands-on lab instruction by a chef instructor in a commercial kitchen. All students must wear appropriate chef's uniforms for all lab classes, and must follow the rules of a safe kitchen by arriving for class in a clean, well-groomed manner. Students will have and be responsible for their 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. Successful completion of of the 2-year program leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree in Culinary Arts. In addition, students completing this program will be eligible to obtain ServSafe Sanitation certification from the National Restaurant Association.
