culinary arts careers
This is part of the Career Arts Conservatory.
Students start with safety in the kitchen, move into knife skills, then cooking. As the students become more advanced they take part in tasting challenges, serve dinners and cook for specialty events, earn their food handler’s cards, and progress into a restaurant management class.
This program is currently a two year program offered to grades ten through twelve only.
The facility offers a full commercial kitchen with an adjacent lab room for work in the classroom. The program started in the 2017/2018 school year and has been a very popular addition to Encore’s arts programs.
During the 20/21 school year, the Culinary Arts Careers program will be offering two on campus cooking challenge competitions - one per semester.
The general public can enjoy the culinary treats by attending one of Encore's dinner theater programs throughout the school year.
