The Experience

Restaurant Forte is a tribute to former Utah Culinary Director Greg Forte, who started the UVU Culinary Arts program in 1990 utilizing the Pioneer House which was once in the center of campus. 

Chef Forte, who has also served as Director of Education at Le Cordon Bleu, took the culinary curriculum at UVU from its humble beginnings and developed it into a world-class program that produces top chefs who are in high demand and are recruited by renowned establishments throughout the country.

Restaurant Forte plays an important role for UVU Culinary Arts students in gaining valuable experience in all aspects of running a food service business. Students rotate through different stations of the operation in addition to planning and preparing menus focusing on international and American regional cuisine.

Restaurant Forte is where delicious food prepared by thriving culinary arts students and good company join together to honor the roots of UVU’s Culinary Arts program and to toast its promising future. 

Thank you for dining with us. Bon Appétit!
