Culinary Cafe

The Culinary Arts Program and the student-run Culinary Arts Cafe is a comprehensive, hands-on approach for students interested in pursuing an education in the culinary arts or obtaining a job in the food service industry. 

Prerequisites to the program are as follows; completion of Food and Nutrition and  Careers in Food and Nutrition; a strong desire and  willingness to participate in a small group environment, working closely with classmates and on an individual basis to complete all aspects of a working, professional, kitchen. 

Students learn basic food preparation techniques, safety and sanitation procedures, food costing, ordering/purchasing and menu design.  In addition dining room etiquette, different service techniques and customer service are covered.

The Cafe is open twice weekly for all faculty and staff of WHPS.  Guests are invited to dine-in our comfortable cafe or opt for delivery/pick-up.  Each week a different student is responsible for creating and executing a unique menu based on their culinary preference.  Rotating on a weekly basis students master every aspect from dishes to Head Chef obligations.

The Culinary Class Room is truly a hands-on learning environment.  We welcome constructive feedback from our customers and respect special requests and criticism.  Come down, relax and enjoy an affordable, delectable meal.
