Erie Community College (Culinary Arts Program)

When you consider the number of people employed and overall sales dollars generated, it is easy to see why the hospitality and culinary industry is one of the largest in the United States. It has been estimated that the industry will need over 100,000 newly-trained employees every year for the next ten years.

The objective of the Culinary Arts curriculum is to provide students with a variety of culinary skills enabling them to enter positions which meet with their career aspirations and the job opportunities available. The degree is achieved through full-time day study.

Throughout the culinary arts program, food preparation and management skills are developed. Specific areas of study include baking, classical, and international cuisine, American regional cuisine, banquet management and buffet presentation, and the skills of the cold kitchen. Practical experience is another highlight of the curriculum as students prepare a variety of cuisines in the E.M. Statler Dining Room at the City campus and the Statler Erie Room at North campus, as well as the campus cafeterias and City Campus Atrium Café.

Graduates of the program can be employed throughout the hospitality industry as chefs, bakers, cooks, and apprentices in hotels, restaurants, clubs, and hospitals. They are also better prepared to attend nationally recognized culinary programs, as well as to transfer into Bachelor’s programs in many areas of hospitality management.
