Full-Time Adult Classes
30 Hours of Training Per Week
The Culinary Arts program teaches the skills necessary to operate a successful food service business. The program incorporates the NRAEF ServSafe Manager curriculum to train students to arrange and run a kitchen in a way that ensures food is prepared, stored and reheated safely, and all federal and state regulations are adhered to. Students take the National Restaurant Association ServSafe® examination for certification.
Learn how the purchasing cycle of a restaurant works, from product and vendor selection to filling orders. Analyze the flow of goods, forecast sales, and control labor and food costs to improve the profitability of a foodservice establishment. Learn what it takes to uphold the professional standards of performance for dining room personnel, including order taking and guest relations.
Of course, the kitchen is the heart of the industry. You will learn fundamental cooking theories and techniques including knife skills, soups, stocks, sauces, glazes, baked goods and pastries, moist heat and dry heat cooking techniques. No meal is complete without beverages. Learn about styles of wine, cocktails, and beers, as well as non-alcoholic beverages from around the world. You will also learn the theory and practice of matching beverages with food, tastings, and organizing beverage service.
Throughout the program, you will develop an online portfolio to showcase your achievements and abilities.
