Description: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. This one-year Ontario College Certificate program is designed to train professional cooks with an emphasis on culinary skills and hands-on experience. Students study food preparation, baking techniques, the control of food costs, computer applications, sanitation and safety procedures, and nutrition and menu planning, in order to acquaint themselves with the working conditions that can be expected upon graduation.

Some hands-on classes are held during the evenings and weekends in the College`s Restaurant International, and students receive many opportunities to be involved in real world experiences, both at the College and at various hotels, restaurants and event facilities to further refine and develop their knowledge and skills. Students have the opportunity to participate in many events, competitions and activities that the culinary programs are involved in throughout the community, in order to complete a mandatory 40 hours of field placement per semester, which is required for graduation from the program.
