Culinary Arts Management


Mendocino College’s 24 Unit Culinary Arts Certificate Program is training passionate cooks, kitchen managers, and chefs in the Mendocino-Lake Community College District.  Students work in a fully functional kitchen where they learn all the skills of the trade. Textbook study is combined with the expertise of our talented chef instructors, who are all industry veterans.

Hands-on training and small class size produces concentrated instruction and a perfectly formulated, structured working environment.  Students complete the program with skills and a certificate that opens doors to a variety of culinary professions and opportunities.

While the program focuses on the foodservice professional, classes are open to all. Improving your cooking, baking, pastry and chocolate skills is enriching for everyone. Come join us, (PS, you get to eat what you cook).
