The Cooking Camp At the college’s training facilities, experienced culinary professionals will instruct students on kitchen basics and essential cooking techniques. Shelton State is equipped with a modern kitchen space to accommodate their Culinary Arts program, and students will have a chance to experience what it’s like to work with a chef’s mise en scene, surrounded by stainless steel and all the requisite tools. A Lifetime of Benefit When you talk with virtually any passionate chef, more often than not, you’ll hear that their interest in cooking began at an early age. Many great cooks learned the ropes while hanging on to their grandmother’s apron strings, and they are often grateful for guardians that supported and fostered an interest in food. Whether your student dreams of manning the range in a professional kitchen or just expanding on their culinary knowledge, the camp promises to lay a sturdy foundation. Getting into the Business If your student is truly interested in pursuing a career in professional cooking, then prospects look better every day. It is projected that job opportunities for head cooks and chefs may grow by up to nine percent by 2024. Alabama is in the midst of a culinary renaissance, and our food cities have recently enjoyed national press for the variety and quality of our cuisine. There’s quite a lot of work that comes between entering the job market and becoming a head chef, and an educational opportunity like the summer camp can help students grasp the basics before they ever ring up their first order.
