The Alvin Community College culinary arts program held it's first class in Fall 2006 as a non-credit work force education program, that offered two one year non-credit certificates. In fall 2007 we became a fully accredited culinary program offering two-one year certificates and a 2 year AAS degree. We currently offer certificate classes in the Central unit of the TDCJ, dual credit classes at Glenda Dawson high school with Pearland ISD and at the ACC main campus in Alvin, Texas. Give us a call at 281.756.3949 if you would like more information. It would be our pleasure to visit with you.

Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Alvin Community College culinary arts program is to provide our students with an affordable, practical and realistic education in a personalized learning environment where students can gain the skills required for successful entry into the global foodservice industry.
At Alvin Community College our culinary arts program is segmented into 8 separate lab classes. One of those classes is basic food preparation. It occurs at the beginning of the lab class sequence. Much as you would expect from a class titled basic food preparation we do some very basic things in this class. Last night, we made puree soups. This gave us the chance to break out some appliances we had not used since last year.

Below is a picture of Rhonda driving our Vitamix blender. Thank you Vitamix and Waring for your support. Hiding behind Rhonda is Amber and Shelby is visible in the background to the right.
The students produced split pea soup, cream of carrot and black bean soup. It was a job well done by all. Thanks.
Until next time:
Bon Appetit Y'all
