Instructor: Rachel Conover
The IVVC Culinary Arts program offers students a hands-on experience of the restaurant industry. They will learn how to operate a catering and quick service restaurant business. Developing strong knife skills, organizational techniques, sanitation fundamentals and understanding the flavor profiles of ingredients are core principals of the course. Students will gain real world expertise to help them meet the demands of the modern restaurant industry. Course expectations will require the use of basic math skills along with developing public speaking and presentation techniques. Labs will require the ability to work well with others in a fast paced kitchen environment.
IVVC Culinary Arts classes use the ProStart program, developed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, a two-year curriculum designed to teach high school students the management skills needed for a career in the restaurant and food service industry. Students enrolled in Culinary Arts will be expected to participate in routine physical activities on a daily basis that will foster the development of movement skills and enhance health-related fitness.
