Culinary Arts

Culinary Arts is an extensive hands-on and theory-based program that prepares the student for a career as a Professional Chef. In the two-year program, students gain skill in virtually all aspects of food preparation, including pantry, bakery, garde manger, grill, sandwich making, ala carte, quantity food productions, soups, sauces, and meat preparation. 

Students should note that this is a complete and comprehensive program based on classical French and European cuisine also offering a much broader grounding such as Asian, vegetarian and the contemporary blending of ethnic cuisines that are so popular today.

All aspects of Culinary Arts are covered, including meats, fish and poultry. Handling and tasting these products is an integral part of many of our courses. If you have any medical, religious, moral or other reasons that may prevent this, please make an appointment with the program coordinator prior to registering.

Cost: In addition to regular college costs, students spend about $350 to purchase uniforms, knives, shoes, books and other equipment. Students should wait until after the first day of class to purchase these items.
