    Program Description

    Culinary Preparation/ProStart®

    During this two-year program, students will work in a commercial kitchen using modern food equipment to prepare large quantities of entrees, vegetables and desserts.

    The Culinary Preparation program uses ProStart®, a two-year curriculum developed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. The ProStart® curriculum is based on the knowledge high school students need to be successful in the restaurant industry by providing them with training related to important management and practical skills, as well as opportunities for career exploration and higher education.

    The program introduces students to concepts not normally found in traditional programs-topics like customer relations, accounting, food cost controls, and marketing. Industry based and teacher tested materials make the ProStart® curriculum relevant to a student’s future-whether they are going on to post-secondary or out into the workforce.

    Experiences in short order service, food storage, food preparation, record keeping, customer relations and serving will take place in the “Corral” a fully equipped restaurant located on the Buckeye Hills Career Center campus.
