Food Studies

Do you like to cook? Would you like to be able to cook for your family and friends? Or maybe you would like to enhance your kitchen skills so you can obtain a part time job or maybe even work towards a full time career in the hospitality industry.

Students are also introduced to the wide range of related career opportunities. Students have the opportunity to become involved in the Culinary Skills School Team! A new team at St. Albert Catholic High School, that provides students with the opportunity to practice and refine their kitchen skills.
