Culinary Arts

The Culinary Arts program is designed to prepare students for success in the food service and hospitality industry. It provides opportunities to learn the basic skills in product knowledge, food production, service and management while incorporating extensive hands-on instruction and internship opportunities.

The Wine Country Culinary Institute at WWCC is accredited by the American Culinary Federation and operates in a state of the art facility on our main campus, as well as a satellite commercial kitchen at the Center for Enology and Viticulture. Our commitment to Culinary Arts teaching and learning is evident in both our facilities and curriculum. We are a student centered program with an active Culinary Arts Club and opportunities to participate in structured labs, classroom and hands-on learning environments.
