Culinary Arts Groups


The Culinary Arts class will be divided up into five groups that will perform various assigned tasks on a daily basis determined by the State of Florida Curriculum Framework. The satisfactory and proficient performance of these tasks will be the primary source of your grade on the “Daily Lab Evaluation” form. Each group will have a cooking and a maintenance assignment daily

When you arrive in class; it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to go look at your daily assignment and report to that area immediately and perform your assigned tasks satisfactorily and proficiently.

Failure to perform your assigned tasks will result in an unsatisfactory or failing (“F”) grade for the day/week.

It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to get to class on time, wash your hands at a hand sink, get a jacket, apron, and hair net or hat and report to your assigned area.

These will determine your “Practical Culinary Arts” grade on a daily basis.

There is no eating or drinking in the kitchen while food is being prepared or served!

You may eat and drink in the dining room/classroom during your lunch period or breaks.

The Culinary Arts program depends on the products and/or supplies we sell to continue to provide funds to buy the materials we need in order to cook and learn. Giving away or stealing food and/or supplies will only serve to not realize the income or money for those products given away or stolen.

Take pride in what you do and how you do it!!!
