Elk Grove High School Culinary Addition
Elk Grove High School’s competitive Culinary Arts Pathway Program provides students with hands-on, career-readiness training in the culinary arts. Program enrollment demands outpaced the space available, limiting course offerings, program enrollment, and expansion opportunities. The Culinary Arts instructor worked side-by-side with the design team, envisioning the facility reflective of his time at the Culinary Institute of America. The new learning environment provides students with a dedicated Demonstration Room for teacher skill demonstrations and a separate Chef’s Kitchen for hands-on application. There is now ample space for teaching and learning everything from knife skills to safety, sanitation, and business planning.
