The culinary arts program is proud to be Berkshire County’s only culinary program certified by the American Culinary Federation. This distinction is a direct result of the high-quality culinary education our students receive. Students enrolled in culinary arts progress from the fundamentals of baking and cooking to the more creative aspects of the field. In addition to daily assignments in our modern kitchens, opportunities for students to apply their knowledge are provided through participation in our quantity foods program, “Tea Room” restaurant and bake-shop, the annual Gourmet Dinner, as well as SkillsUSA competitions. The demand for qualified employees in the hospitality industry is at its peak, and graduating from the culinary arts program will help ensure students are ready to pursue a career in this exciting area or further develop their skills at a postsecondary institution.
