The UT Culinary Program offers an intense twelve-week noncredit culinary certificate. It recently was certified by the American Culinary Federation as a Quality Program, the only one in the state with that distinction. Program Director Greg Eisele also was certified by the American Culinary Federation as a certified executive chef.

The Culinary Program will graduate its sixth class this fall. Graduates have gone on to work at prestigious restaurants and resorts such as Blackberry Farms, and others have opened their own food trucks and businesses.
