The Culinary Arts Technology concentration provides a solid foundation in the methods and science of cooking through exposure to classical, American, and international cuisine, as well as the art of baking and pastries. Special emphasis is placed on culinary tools, equipment, techniques, and specialty ingredients. The heart of the Culinary Arts Technology program is hands-on lab instruction by a chef instructor in a commercial kitchen housed at the MDCC Greenwood Center. All students must wear appropriate chef’s uniforms for all lab classes. Culinary Arts students may receive a technical certificate after successfully completing two years of CUT and/or HRT courses listed in the Culinary Arts curriculum.
