Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management Program Curriculum in the Renaissance Room
The Renaissance Room offers valuable restaurant experience for second-year culinary arts & hospitality management students in a real-time laboratory setting. The three terms are divided into focused areas of Advanced Cooking Theories including Garde Manger (the art of the cold kitchen), International Cuisine & Regional American Cuisines.
The Renaissance Room menu changes weekly to feature the regions & focus of study. We offer local, seasonal, and sustainable cuisine whenever possible. Lunch includes a choice of soup or salad, entree, and a dessert sampler.
