Cooking


A Cooking Program will generally teach a student how to prepare and present a variety of different food items. The program will also teach proper food safety standards. Most programs will also teach students how to do proper cost analysis of the dishes they are preparing and help them understand complimentary food and drink items. The Advanced Cooking Programs can take up to 3 years to complete.

Once a student has graduated from a Cooking Program, he/she will be expected to understand different types of stocks, sauces, soups, pastries, deserts, meats, poultries, and how they play a role in each individuals nutritional regiment.
