Culinary technology program offered at Schoolcraft College

As technological advances make further headway in commercial kitchens, Schoolcraft College, Livonia, Mich., has responded by offering a culinary technology certificate program to train chefs in accelerated cooking methods and equipment. The Innovative Culinary Technology Certificate program is a three-course curriculum that will focus on equipment and topics like combination ovens, rapid-cook ovens, impingement, induction, holding blast chilling and freezing, sous vide, green energy use, kitchen design for various business channels, quality control and food cost savings.

Registration for the winter semester is under way, and class sizes are limited. Interested candidates can attend an open house Jan. 11 in the Culinary Arts Demonstration Lab at the main campus, where they will tour the facilities and meet the instructors. For more information, visit
