Culinary Art courses address multiple skills, including food preparation, nutritional health, consumer skills, and time management. Food courses concentrate on practical skills used in everyday life. Basic cooking skills such as reducing recipes, kitchen safety, and sanitation are presented in all cooking classes. Budgeting and consumer skills such as unit pricing, comparison-shopping, and time-management strategies are offered in select coursework. Two courses satisfy the graduation requirement in the Arts: Foods Around the World and Pastries.
