The Culinary Arts program provides the student with hands-on experience in foodservice in a professional kitchen and restaurant setting. The Falcon Café is a student-run full-service restaurant that allows students to experience all aspects of the restaurant business. Students in Culinary Arts I learn to prepare baked goods, learn and practice cooking techniques, cook for the restaurant and engage in customer service. Students start portfolios that document their work in the culinary program, explore food service careers and demonstrate employability skills.
In Culinary Arts II, students will build on the acquired skills and take leadership roles. The students use the second year to explore the area of food service that most interests them. Students continue to expand their knowledge of food services, food preparation, demonstrate bakery production skills and gain a greater understanding of the hospitality industry.
