This intensive one-day crash course is designed to teach the beginner chef basic Culinary Arts techniques. Walk away with knowledge to expand your home cooking repertoire - from knife skills to soups and stocks! Our detailed 6-week course offering of Introduction to Culinary Arts is the most popular offering in our Community Education program, so we have created this modified one-day version as another option!

What do I bring to class?
Nothing! Just bring yourself and the enthusiasm to learn something new in the kitchen! The College will provide a recipe book and all of the necessary tools for students to use while they're in class.
What to Expect:
- Classes are typically 2 1/2 hours long (unless otherwise noted)
- Classes are limited to 12, 14, or 16 students per kitchen (depending on curriculum and Chef's preference)
- Participants typically work in teams to execute recipes; however, individual skills will be taught.
- You will be standing and cooking for most of the class.
- We ask that all participants wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes as the kitchen floors can be slippery. Any type of heels should not be worn.
- Long pants are also suggested to protect the skin from possible burns.
- Long hair should be tied back and secure.
