Culinary Arts – CTE Program of Study

  • Culinary Arts – CTE Program of Study (pdf)

    The Culinary Arts program is designed to prepare students to apply technical knowledge and skills required for food production and service occupations in commercial foodservice establishments. Students completing this program will possess the technical knowledge and skills required for planning, selecting, storing, purchasing, preparing and serving quality food products. Nutritive values, safety and sanitation procedures, use of commercial equipment, serving techniques and management of food establishments will also be studied. In addition to technical skills, students completing this program will develop advanced critical thinking, applied academic, career development, life and employability skills, business, economic, and leadership skills required for culinary arts occupations. The program utilizes a delivery system made up of four integral parts: formal/technical instruction, experiential learning, supervised occupational experience, and the Career and Technical Student Organizations, FCCLA. 

    Culinary Arts is offered at all five of our Gilbert Public Schools high school campuses: Campo Verde HighDesert Ridge HighGilbert HighHighland High, and Mesquite High.

Will you enroll in more CTE courses in the future? 
 
If there were specifically more culinary CTE courses, I would because I have a passion for cooking. However, if it wasn't a culinary CTE, I wouldn't have taken it.
 
Do you believe what you’ve learned in Culinary has prepared you for your future career?
 
I believe that it has taught me certain leadership, collaboration, and communication skills that I can use in my future career.
 
Do you have a favorite memory, lesson, or class project from Culinary? 
 
My favorite projects are student-driven ones, where my group and I pick a dish and make it, and present it.

Would you recommend Culinary to your peers?
 
Most of the time, you get to eat the food you cook. The skills that you learn can transfer over to a job in the food industry.
 
How has Culinary positively impacted your high school experience?
 
It has provided me with many useful skills that I would have never learned or learned later on in life. It was a nice break from my core classes throughout the day.
 
Do you have a favorite memory, lesson, or class project from Culinary?
 
Honestly, any time that I got to cook with my friends was my favorite part of culinary. In the second year of Culinary Arts, we had labs just about every day.
