Saddleback College - Food and Nutrition Department

Posted

Pros: lots of hands-on experience, use of state-of-the-art equipment, instructor demos, 5 hour cooking classes

Cons: cleaning, dishes,

I'm in the Foods Program at Saddleback Community College and my experiences thus far have been fantastic! Classes usually meet once a week for 5 hours. This gives the student ample time to prepare and cook a dish.

 

Once a dish is cooked and presented, the instructor comes around to each table and samples the dish. Instructor feedback is given regarding the texture, taste, etc. Students have ample time to ask the instructors questions while they are cooking and demos are provided by the instructor in the beginning before cooking takes place. 

 

The instructors are excellent and Lisa Inlow who is a full-time culinary professor and department co-chair runs the culinary program smoothly. Lisa is constantly looking at ways to better the program and give students access to many different opportunities. 

 

I highly recommend any of the culinary arts certificate programs at Saddleback College. If you're looking to earn a culinary education at an extremely affordable cost, I highly recommend Saddleback Community College in South Orange County, California! Last year, the Saddleback Community College Culinary Arts Program placed 100% of its students with full-time jobs, so...this is very telling about how wonderful Saddleback College prides itself on educating students for real world jobs!
