Culinary artists are higher in the public consciousness than ever before. At first there were famous chefs, then cooking shows, and magazines emerged. Now there are entire television networks, websites, and celebrity franchises dedicated to feeding the public’s affection for the culinary arts. It is a profession known for high energy and high challenge – attributes that likely attracted you to exploring it as a career option.

Come to San Jacinto College and begin the journey. Our program allows you to work within the industry while you build your education. You will receive basic training towards becoming a cook or apprentice chef. This includes food and beverage composition and preparation, use and maintenance of equipment, and supervisory skills. If your ambitions are more specific, you can also choose to specialize as an Assistant Cook, Baker or Baker’s Helper, or in Basic Cooking or Specialty Foods.

Certification from the American Culinary Federation is one of the most prestigious honors that a learning culinarian can obtain. The San Jacinto College Culinary Arts Chef Training and Restaurant Management are recognized among a few select programs in the Houston area that have obtained the accreditation.  

Our goal is to provide the highest level of instruction to give students knowledge, skills, and behaviors needed to transition into the next level of education or a beneficial career in the ever-growing hospitality industry.
