Our programs are designed to train students in the art of professional cooking and baking using theory accompanied by supervised hands-on training.
Located at the City Park Campus of Delgado Community College, we prepare students for entry-level and mid-management culinary positions in the restaurant and foodservice industry and provide skill upgrades for certification, promotions, and increased wages. We offer an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree with a concentration in either Professional Culinarian or Baking and Pastry Arts as well as three Certificate of Technical Studies programs in Culinary Management, Basic Line Cook, or Baking and Pastry Arts.
The Professional Culinarian concentration leads to jobs as savory cooks and chefs, while the Baking and Pastry Arts concentration leads to positions as pastry cooks, cake decorators, and bakers. Students can choose to concentrate in either, based on individual interests and ambitions. We also provide cross training in both concentrations to give students a broad range of skills and offer electives covering a range of industry trends including nutrition, supervision, food writing, and social media to name just a few.

Students will complete an internship providing the opportunity to study under executive chefs of hotels, restaurants, caterers, and bakeries in the metropolitan New Orleans area and beyond. Our students are encouraged to use this opportunity to expand their knowledge of the culinary arts and the world.
