Blue Ridge Community and Technical College Culinary Academy's Programs are designed to provide students with the practical knowledge and skills necessary to ensure successful employment in an entry to mid-level position within the food service and hospitality and tourism industry through a certificate or degree program.

Students will learn classical culinary techniques which include a wide variety of regional cuisines, baking fundamentals from scaling ingredients to designing and constructing elaborate centerpieces, along with courses that build on immersing the student into all aspects of culinary foundations such as nutrition, safety and sanitation, origins of food, food history, food cost, product efficiency, molecular gastronomy, speed, attention to detail and culinary artistry. Practical lab experiences will help to complete the well-rounded student for entry into the workforce. Students will be able to experience the flow of their product from creation to service in this degree program.
