What is Culinary Arts?
When the term “culinary arts” is used, what does it actually mean? Your first thought is likely a chef in a restaurant who works to prepare food for his or her eager customers. Although this is part of the culinary arts, there is much more to the topic than simply cooking.
Breaking apart the term, culinary means “related to cooking” and arts refers to any broad area of interest. So, put simply culinary arts are the arts of preparing, cooking, presenting and serving food. This may often be in the form of meals in a restaurant, but culinary arts can refer to all professions that involve preparing, cooking and presenting food.
