These schools coach prospective chefs in the principles of culinary arts, baking, pastry making and kitchen management. A few programs also offer bachelor’s degree programs in hospitality management.

While they are taking courses in properly equipped kitchen classrooms, enrollees learn grilling, baking, garnishing, sauteing pastry making, menu preparation, food safety practices and essential commercial kitchen management operations.

Customary course subjects normally include:

  • Aspects of culinary arts
  • Catering and event management
  • Professional cooking
  • Spirits and wine service
  • Restaurant baking
  • Restaurant pastry baking
  • Restaurant management

These schools are aware of just how busy young adults may be, so they typically offer adjustable class offerings enabling students to go to training courses in the daytime or evening.
