We’re proud to have some of the finest restaurants in metro Atlanta as training sites for students in our Culinary Apprenticeship Certificate program, and we just added two more to the list: Murphy’s and Paces & Vine. The nine-month program, which begins each September, provides a hands-on educational experience as students work with professional chefs in at a variety of culinary establishments, from catering companies to fine dining to cafeteria.
Pam Moss, culinary program manager, said, “This exclusive opportunity puts our students right in the kitchen with these culinary experts for a one-of-a-kind learning experience. Our partnership with Murphy’s and Paces & Vine will continue to enhance the quality of this program.”
Park 75 at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, Villa Christina at Perimeter Summit, Endive Catering, Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza & Grill, Canoe and The Commons at KSU are also included in the 420-hour apprenticeship site rotation.
“This intensive training is extremely beneficial for our students,” Pam said. “They are being trained by some of the best chefs in the area.”
The Culinary Apprenticeship Certificate program is modeled after the European approach of culinary education and is designed to combine classroom instruction and practical application. A professional kitchen at KSU Center serves as the classroom where students are taught by an experienced chef. Knife skills, nutrition and the entire cooking process, from food and equipment prep to plating and serving exquisite dishes, are part of the curriculum.
