Ciao Bella! 

What is Culinary Arts?

Culinary provides training for individuals who want to pursue careers in the culinary arts. Through both lecture coursework and hands-on kitchen training, culinary arts educate students on the theory and practice of food preparation. They teach them to use kitchen equipment effectively to prepare many different dishes. They also show students how to strictly follow safety and sanitation procedures and apply business and management concepts in order to achieve professional success in the competitive food service and hospitality industries. Additionally, culinary arts may teach basic cooking classes for community members who want to improve their skills.
