Vernon College Culinary Academy Summer Classes

These are some great things that the community can take advantage of at the Vernon College Culinary Academy!

Here are some of the week-long classes available for Culinary:

Popular Cooking Methods:

Once you learn how to handle these fundamental techniques: steam, grill, sauté, and roasting, you will be able to handle most recipes. Cooking is not just about recipes… it is about how to take ingredients and make them taste as good as possible. Recipes are great road maps to show us how someone else got there, but one of the joys of cooking is to find your own paths. Knowing these techniques is like taking the car out for a spin in a new location. You're not sure where you are going to end up, but getting there will be fun.
