Culinary Arts

Cerritos College Culinary Arts Cafe and the Falcon Room Restaurant are the creative outlets for the Cerritos College Culinary Arts Program and the premiere dining destinations on the Cerritos College Campus. Our dining outlets are designed to give both students and diners a unique learning and gastronomic experience. The Culinary Arts program focuses much of its time and energy into experiential learning through the Café and the Falcon Room Restaurant.

Mission and Vision:

The objective of this teaching style is to give graduating students practical skills to match the theories learned in the classroom. With these skills our students are able to seamlessly blend into fine dining establishments upon graduating from the programs.

How do we operate?

Each week, the students rotate through various stations thereby gaining a comprehensive knowledge of the workings of a kitchen. Students work all aspects of the restaurant from creating menus and researching international cuisines to taking orders, using our touchscreen POS, assisting diners, and orchestrating their meal.
