Program / Admission Details

Program Description
Working in the culinary arts field requires taste, creativity, and mastery of technique. In the Davis Technical College Culinary Arts program, students learn both theory and practical kitchen applications of quality food preparation. Students receive instruction and hands-on experience in knife skills, breakfast foods, soups, sauces, vegetables, meat, poultry, seafood, grains, legumes, fruits, proper sanitation, yeast breads, quick breads, desserts, cakes, and pastries. Students gain experience in short-order cooking and front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house catering and feel the stresses of a fast-paced kitchen. Students develop basic kitchen math skills such as yield and baker percentages. The program teaches First In, First Out (FIFO), Hazard Analyses Critical Control Point (HACCP), and best practices in the industry. The Culinary Arts Certificate prepares students for positions in food service operations, including hotels, resorts, restaurants, healthcare facilities, and catering operations.
