Great cuisine starts with high quality, nutritious, and flavorful ingredients. It begins where crops are grown, animals are raised, and wild foods harvested. KVCC’s Culinary Arts program strongly connects good agriculture and sustainable practices to what happens in the kitchen.

“The Culinary Arts Program at KVCC has made an amazing impact on my life. Chefs Enjaian and Chef Reale are knowledgeable and experienced in their craft and it was an absolute pleasure to work with and learn from them.”
—Culinary Arts Student
