has the report. linn-benton community college's culinary course isn't your typical classroom setting. the two-year program offers about 30 students hands-on experience in cooking in a professional kitchen. when i first got here as a first year i was in the bakery program. before that, the only thing cooking was out of a box. just last week, i've made a mere glazed over a pear. it had cake and mousse in it was amazing. i never thought i'd ever make anything close to that before this. in the first year, the students receive guidance from chef instructors-- and during their second year, they began to make courses, build menus, and run an on campus restaurant on their own. it's a lot more than you think it is. learning those things is really helpful for knowing just like the breath of knowing how much there is to know. the program not only teaches students to see the art of cooking in a different perspective than the average eye, but it also provides the support and motivation they need to achieve their passion coming here was an eye opener. wow, we have these great chefs, these great resources. i mean, we get to work in a line and be apart of a real restaurant, get to be apart of a real kitchen and feed a mass of people. the student leave the program with their food handlers card, oregon liquor license, and an associates of science degree. but the most important thing the students leave the program with is the confidence of knowing they're destined to be great chefs. linn-benton community
