The ingredients for a great career
Established in 1996, the Culinary Arts Institute provides interdisciplinary instruction in the culinary arts, emphasizing classic cooking techniques applied to small-quantity food preparation.
In addition to a mastery of cooking skills and knowledge of food service, students also will prepare for employment and leadership in diverse areas of food studies such as food journalism, food photography and styling, nutrition and wellness, and culinary entrepreneurship.
Our graduates are working in the hospitality industry in Mississippi and across the nation. We invite you to create your own recipe for success in the Culinary Arts Institute at The W. Our program offers state-of-the art instruction at the only institution in Mississippi offering a major in culinary arts leading to the bachelor of science degree!
Culinary Camp for Kids
In the professional setting of The Culinary Arts Institute, your child will have the opportunity to learn and explore the wonderful world of foods through demonstration, lectures, and hands-on work in our kitchen.
The busy week will begin with instruction in food safety, proper sanitation and kitchen safety. Each day of camp will find us busy at work as we use practical techniques to produce the recipes of the day that can be easily repeated at home.
As the week progresses, campers will gain practical skills in the correct use of appliances, healthy meal planning and etiquette.
