Culinary Arts

There is always something exciting going on in the culinary arts lab!

Learn how a commercial kitchen operates, cater events, and compete in cooking competitions!  The Culinary Arts program instructs students in kitchen safety, food preparation and foodservice. Students spend their days working in the actual production setting of a restaurant and cafeteria. They prepare and serve the food and beverages at in-school functions such as breakfasts and luncheons, provide the refreshments needed for meetings and cater special events such as school banquets. Special emphasis is given to the development of both a strong work ethic and teamwork skills.Task List & Course Information
