Nine Complete Noncredit Culinary Program at ACA; Training to be Offered at CMCC in January

November 15, 2012

The Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape Community College awarded certificates to nine students who completed a five-month noncredit Culinary Arts Training Program Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Students who completed the program include: Leo Allen of Millville, David Brachew of Somers Point, Harold Corbin of Bridgeton, Linda Duke of Gibbstown, Chez James of Atlantic City, Anita May of Ventnor, Nikia Rivera of Bridgeton, Justin Rowe of Rio Grande and Wilson Turner of Mays Landing.

The students received their certificates during an awards ceremony in Careme’s, the student-run gourmet restaurant at the Academy. Chef Jon Davies of Cape May, an adjunct instructor, taught the course.

The career preparation program offers participants hands-on courses to either learn new skills or enhance existing ones. During the program, students will: 

  • Become ServSafe Certified
  • Learn to master cooking techniques, short order and pantry skills
  • Enhance time management and organizational skills
  • Acquire skills in bread baking, pie making, cake decorating and plated desserts
  • Develop techniques for making great stocks, soups and sauces

The next course begins Monday, Jan. 7, at Atlantic Cape’s Cape May County Campus, 341 Court House-South Dennis Road, in Cape May Court House. Restaurateurs can sponsor a promising employee with a scholarship for the program.
