Culinary Arts & Hospitality
Cook Up a Tasty Career
Culinary arts and Hospitality prepares students for success in the food service and hospitality industry. Students are taught food preparation, dining service, inventory control, safety, and sanitation and management skills. Our students also learn nutrition, healthy cooking, equipment identification, use of hand tools and culinary vocabulary. Students prepare soups and sauces, breakfast entrees, sandwich production, pies, cakes, yeast-raised products, entree preparation, international dishes, vegetable preparation, garnishing, salads and dressings.
Over the past several years, DCTS students have won state and national food preparation and service competitions. We are the only high school Culinary Arts program in this part of Pennsylvania to be certified by the American Culinary Federation (ACF).
Upon graduation, students may seek immediate employment, enter an apprentice program or continue culinary or management studies at the post-secondary level.
