Culinary Arts Certificate, First year

Garde Manger cook at Waterfront Wines in Kelowna


When asked why he chose the culinary arts certificate at Okanagan College, Joshshared, “I had worked in restaurants since I was 16. It was just a job, but it turned into a passion. I realized I could make a lot out of very little and that I could be really creative. At OC, I can bring an idea to the chef instructors and they guide me to how to achieve it by showing me the right techniques. They truly teach me the skills I need to become a chef.
