The Culinary Arts Technology concentration at Hinds CC provides exposure to classical, American, and international cuisine, as well as the art of baking and pastries. Special emphasis is placed on culinary tools, equipment, techniques, and specialty ingredients.

Established in 1996, The W’s Culinary Arts Institute offers one of the nation’s first four-year baccalaureate degree programs in culinary arts.  It is a premier national program that focuses on small quantity, from-scratch cooking.  Students may elect concentrations that include food journalism, food art, entrepreneurship, nutrition and wellness, and Culinology.

Students entering the new program will earn a bachelor’s degree in culinary arts. Courses will include, in addition to general education requirements, those in food preparation, nutrition, world cuisines, management, principles of accounting, economics, marketing, and the legal environment of business.
