VIU & Brooks Culinary Arts
Students at the Future Chefs' Café are enrolled in the VIU and Brooks Culinary Arts program which provides students with a sound knowledge of the basics of professional cooking; to become a recognized chef requires years of work experience. Students who excel in this program are in high demand, and many have attained top-level positions in five-star hotels, restaurants, resorts, and private clubs in Canada and other parts of the world. Graduates have also found employment in institutional kitchens, hospitals, retirement homes, B.C. Ferries and camps. Chefs in the industry recognize the expertise of the Culinary Arts graduates and regularly contact the University instructors when employment opportunities arise locally, nationally and internationally.
