Cabrillo College




Cabrillo College's Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management program provides the student with the basic culinary skills in food preparation and service, advanced a la carte dining, and buffet food productions, as well as food service management training for the industry. Cabrillo College offers a basic skills certificate in cooking or catering (16 units each) and/or a certificate of proficiency in Culinary Arts (33 units). The skills certificates are stepping stones towards a certificate of proficiency. When a student has completed 30 units of Culinary Arts core classes and also completed 21 additional units of general education, they can then complete an A.S. Degree in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management.

The program is located at the beautiful Sesnon House Mansion where there is a full-service restaurant and a catering facility open to the public. The students gain hands-on experience in fine dining and catering events up to 200 people.

The Certificate Program

The Certificate of Proficiency is a program which can be completed in one and a half years and is designed to qualify the student for entry-level employment in areas of cooking, baking or food service management. The Associate in Science (AS) Degree can be earned in two years by completing the core certificate courses plus general education requirements and electives to total 60 units.

Skills Certificates

Skills Certificates and Certificates of Completion are also available for short-term, focused study.

Career Opportunities

Any dish that a trained culinarian creates can be a work of art in both taste and visual appeal. The Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management curriculum is designed not only to train individuals how to prepare food in a creative fashion, but also to plan menus, calculate food costs, purchase, and manage personnel. Upon completion of the program, the student will know basic food science and nutrition, hospitality skills, beverage operation, and sanitation procedures in the food service kitchen.
