Real-World Culinary Experience
As part of the training in the Holistic Chef Culinary Program at Bauman College, our students gain hands-on experience in a professional setting through our required culinary externship. Students have the opportunity to work with personal or private chefs or in venues such as restaurants, food production companies, resorts, corporate and residential dining facilities, nonprofit organizations, catering companies, and other food service programs.
This experience provides a learning opportunity outside of the classroom that builds core competencies and instills confidence in students while also benefiting individual professionals and organizations. It also facilitates community relationships and is an opportunity for students to make connections in the field.
This opportunity allows students to gain a variety of experiences to determine which areas they would like to specialize in. Externships can sometimes transition into job opportunities, providing skilled and trained natural chefs for employers.
