Description:

Our Program This two-year Ontario College Diploma program is designed to train commercial cooks with an emphasis on advanced culinary skills, managerial training and hands-on experience. Cooking has become an art, food preparation is more specialized, and the industry is demanding; therefore, candidates must be prepared to work long hours, be in good health and be physically fit. To acquaint students with the working conditions that they can expect after graduation, some hands-on classes are held during the evenings or weekends in the College's, Restaurant International. To further refine and develop your knowledge and skills there are many opportunities to be involved in real world experience, both at the college and at various hotels, restaurants and event facilities outside of class time. Participation in the many events, competitions and activities that the culinary programs are involved in throughout the community is strongly advised to get the most out of your educational experience while attending college. The program is divided into four levels. Students study food preparation, baking techniques, the control of food costs, computer applications, sanitation and safety procedures, nutrition and menu planning, management applications and communication skills. In the last two levels, students focus on haute cuisine and kitchen management skills.
