Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Culinary Arts diploma program is hands-on, fast-paced and cutting edge—and the only four-semester advanced culinary training program in Saskatchewan.

Culinary Arts is a  diploma program offered at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Prince Albert Campus. Your instructors are all experienced Red Seal chefs

They will introduce you to cooking principles and practices, everything from baking to breakfasts, garde manger to a la carte, and meats, seafood and poultry to vegetables, starches and pasta. 

Here are some of the exciting culinary subjects you will be exposed to:

  • baking and pastry
  • catering and special event cooking
  • Contemporary cuisine and modern food trends
  • field-to-fork experience
  • fine dining
  • meat cutting and cooking
  • regional foods and Indigenous foods
  • sauces and soups
  • short order food production
  • vegetable cooking
  • wines and beverages
  • world cuisines

You’ll spend your time learning new skills and applying new knowledge through a combination of hands-on learning, online learning, and participation in actual food events.
