Program

The Culinary Arts Institute (CAI) at UVU provides premier training  for students interested in a career in professional cooking or baking. The program offers small, hands-on classes, focusing on individualized attention and development. The Culinary Arts Institute provides experience, through “engaged” industry based learning.

The Culinary Arts Institutes comprehensive course of study covers several service areas; including not only learning how to cook and bake, but key requirement to success such as; customer service, business and finance management, marketing and advertising. CAI students learn how to apply these skills to a variety of food service establishments and operations. The practical and theoretical instruction covers such areas as food service safety and sanitation, professional dining room service, menu planning, nutrition and purchasing-storeroom management procedures.

While studying Culinary Arts at UVU, students gain a solid understanding of the food and beverage industry and learn the newest techniques  in food and baking production  using state-of-the-art equipment in our kitchen labs. The CAI also applies real world training as students run, full service, fine dining operations  at Restaurant Forte, located in the UCCU Center and the Canyon Park Café located the Culinary Arts Institute in North Orem. These industry based learning models allow students to work with  a wide range of foods while directly interacting with the public. In order to get the full breadth of running their own food service establishment, students work in a variety of functions including waiting tables, purchasing, preparing food, hosting, and supervising as the head chef.
