What is Culinary Arts?

Future chefs in this program have their eyes opened to the creative and delectable world of culinary arts. From aspects of proper cooking, Culinary Arts program students are exposed to all aspects of proper cooking, food preparation, and kitchen management, to advanced techniques required to work in the world's finest dining establishments, these students master a wide array of skill sets. Cooking activities include the preparation and cooking of cuisines from around the world, as well as specialized techniques in creating food art and presentation. As part of all high-quality culinary programs, students must master sanitation practices; proper use of cooking tools and equipment; and safe management of raw materials, ingredients, production processes, quality control processes, and supply costs analysis.
