Culinary Arts

The Culinary Arts program at McCann Technical School 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 school cafeteria, “Tea Room” restaurant and bake-shop, the annual Gourmet Dinner, as well as SkillsUSA competitions. The demand for qualified employees in the hospitality fields is growing and graduating from the Culinary Arts program will help ensure you are ready to pursue a career in this exciting area or further develop your skills at a post-secondary institution.
