Southern Maine Community College (Culinary Arts)

The food service industry is the third largest national industry. The National Restaurant Association has estimated that 75,000 people will be needed annually for jobs that do not exist today. It is estimated that 60,000 additional chefs will be needed each year in the United States. SMCC’s Culinary Arts program offers instruction in food preparation and service to supply these demands.

The program curriculum covers all aspects of basic food preparation including meats, poultry, fish, vegetable, sauces, soups, bread and pastry baking, desserts, specialty cooking and many other areas such as culinary math. Students may also participate in annual European study tours to Austria and Italy as program electives.

Related instruction gives emphasis to management techniques, including inventory control, culinary mathematics, personnel and business management, bookkeeping, accounting and menu planning, and a 400 hour externship. General education rounds out training with coursework in English, math, and social science. A 400-hour externship rounds out the program.

Opportunities for graduates are wide ranging in all areas of both direct food preparation and related management in the food service field.
