Culinary Arts is a growing program in our schools across Georgia. This program is designed for those wanting to learn the “art” of cooking and for those wanting to continue in the Arts field in any of the many diverse opportunities: Sous Chef, Pastry Chef, Kitchen manager, Garde Manger, Banquet Chef, or a Restaurant Entrepreneur.
First course: Introduction to Culinary Arts Second course: Culinary Arts I Third course: Culinary Arts II
Culinary Arts students will complete a variety of skills required by the restaurant and food industry, such as knife skills, cooking techniques, menu planning, food purchasing and costing, food safety and sanitation, and front of the house service. The pathway allows students to develop in-depth knowledge and hands-on skill mastery of culinary arts and allows them to refine hands-on production of the classic fundamentals in the commercial kitchen.
Students are also eligible to apply for the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS). NTHS is the premier honor society for Career and Technical Education students, drawing on their experiences in the CTAE classroom.
