There is joy in the kitchen if you know where to look.

The restaurant industry-driven curriculum provides students with real-world practical and foundational restaurant skills. In the context of an on-site professional kitchen and restaurant, topics will include food preparation; recipes and ingredients; front-of-the-house customer service; dining room etiquette; meal and menu planning; professional kitchen equipment use and maintenance; sanitation and hygiene; workplace safety; proper food handling; and workflow. Students will learn about the many culinary related jobs and career pathways as well as 21st-century work skills.
