KNOXWORX CULINARY TRAINING.
Are you interested in pursuing a culinary career? We are honored to partner with The University of Tennessee Culinary & Catering Program to be able to offer our KnoxWorx Culinary training.
The UT Culinary & Catering Program is training young adults for culinary careers as the newest partner in the Knoxville Leadership Foundation’s KnoxWorx program.
The students, ranging from 18 to 24 years old, are enrolled in a 64-hour Culinary Boot Camp that will soon give them opportunities for full-time employment. They are acquiring fundamental skills in commercial equipment usage, knife skills, mise en place, recipe evaluation, garde manger, hot food production, and catering event operations.
KnoxWorx is a city-wide workforce development collaborative that helps individuals obtain training and credentials in high-demand industries.
Eisele trusted the students to play an instrumental role in preparing and serving a high-profile luncheon for 150 participants at the UT Academic Meeting Professionals Conference on March 5.
In advance of the Culinary Boot Camp, the students completed KLF training in “soft skills” including punctuality, conduct in the workplace, and presentation and interview skills. They also completed food handler’s certification and a “restaurant ready” job knowledge training module as well as an orientation session led by Eisele.
In 2017 the UT Culinary & Catering Program was again recognized by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation (ACFEF) as a quality program. ACFEF Quality Program status recognizes culinary- and hospitality-related programs that meet or exceed industry standards for education and training.
