Culinary Arts

Program Overview

As Julia Childs once said, “No one is born a great cook; one learns by doing.” The Culinary Arts program can help you learn by doing while helping you sharpen your skills – no matter what your prior experience is.

The Culinary Arts program covers a wide curriculum of hands-on training to help you become the toast of the town – as a cook, pastry or restaurant chef, baker, or caterer. Our expert instructors will teach you culinary and baking concepts and techniques, nutrition, and theory. You will also learn about formulating multiple flavors, textures, and colors in preparing classic and modern sweet desserts, bread, pastry products, decorative showpieces, and special occasion cakes – those that are marketable and reflect industry trends.
