Culinary Practicums

Cooking is best learned through hands-on experience, which is why our curriculum is designed such that 80% of class time is dedicated to practicums. The practicums begin with the fundamentals so that students have the opportunity to build their knowledge on strong foundations.

Field trips

During the program, students visit several local food production centers and small-scale local farms. The field trips help students better understand the production chain of the food industry, as well as preparation and storage techniques for various types of food, including cheeses, baked goods, meat products, wine, and coffee. Students are introduced to various brands of local produce from which they can learn to distinguish quality products and create contacts with local producers.
