Culinary Arts Certificate

Your Culinary Arts Certificate will qualify you to work as a prep cook and a line cook in fine restaurants, hotels, resorts, and in institutional food preparation and service. 

The Culinary Arts Certificate, like the industry itself, demands dedication and hard work. The focus is to provide you with practical training in all aspects of commercial food preparation and presentation. You will operate two open-to-the public restaurants as your labs. Those are the The Heritage, a fine dining restaurant, and Art and Bev's, a counter-service dining experience.

Your courses will cover:

  • Dining room service.
  • Baking.
  • Classical and American regional cookery.
  • Restaurant operations.
  • Nutrition.
  • Sanitation.
  • Purchasing.
  • Personnel management.

The courses you take in this program can be applied to the Culinary Arts Associate Degree offered by GRCC's Secchia Institute for Culinary Education.
