Culinary Arts

Description

The Culinary Arts program is a strong foundation for any high school student looking to take that first step in becoming a chef. Students begin their junior year learning culinary terminology, basic knife skills, operating lab equipment, and learning to be part of a team that works together toward success.

Culinary Arts students operate the in-school, full-service restaurant called the CULINARY CAFE, as part of their lab experience. To operate the cafe, each student is assigned a workstation in either food production or a dining room service area. The restaurant is open to the public from the surrounding communities, staff, and MVCTC students. The menu changes every day to give students the experience to learn different foods, cuisines, techniques, methods. Students also participate in FCCLA skill events on a local, regional, state, and national level. The benefit of doing well in these skill events has led to partial and full term scholarships.

Graduates of the Culinary Arts program upon completing their education at the MVCTC opt to enter the workforce, enter the military in food related fields or pursue a college education. Those students furthering their education are encouraged to attend universities that offer Culinary Arts, Baking & Pastry Arts, Hospitality Management or nutrition.
