Got what it takes to be an executive chef? UVU’s Culinary Arts Institute serves up a hearty helping of hands-on learning, so you’ll get the real-world experience you need to work at the restaurant of your dreams. As a senior you will work in the student-run Restaurant Forte where you’ll make a different international dish each week. You and your classmates will also prepare a five-course meal for over 600 people at the Culinary Arts Gala Dinner and President’s Scholarship Ball. If you want to set yourself apart from other culinary arts graduates, join the CAI Student Competition Club and show off your skills at regional and national events like the NICCO Cup or Skills USA. In 2014 student Lyn Wells prepared the winning dish in the Young Chef Competition, earning herself $15,000 and a three-month internship at the restaurant of her choice. A solid resume (and wallet) booster for an aspiring chef! Make UVU’s culinary arts program a part of your recipe for success.
