Explore culinary arts careers at Nicolet Feb. 6

Anyone who loves creating culinary delights is invited to learn how to turn that passion into a career at the culinary arts open house at Nicolet College on Thursday, Feb. 6.

The event will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Northwoods Center on the Rhinelander campus, according to a Nicolet press release.

The school's culinary arts program offers nine different academic credentials, ranging from short-term certificates to a pair of two-year associate's degrees, one that focuses on food preparation and the second on the management side of the house, the release states.

In addition, Nicolet features several credit transfer agreements with four-year campuses for graduates to earn their bachelor's degrees, including one with the University of Wisconsin-Stout that can be completed without leaving the Northwoods.

At the open house students will have the opportunity to tour the college's state-of-the-art kitchen, experience different cooking demonstrations, and meet with current students and instructors to learn about the many different classes and future job opportunities, the release states.

The culinary arts program is structured with students first earning short-term certificates. These then serve as stepping stones to the one-year technical diploma and then one or both of the two-year associate's degrees.

Often students will use the certificates to land an entry-level job in the field and continue taking classes to learn the skills for more advanced positions.

"This way students can earn money, gain experience, and also earn the college credentials that will move them farther ahead in their careers," culinary arts instructor Vicki Mendham explained.

Students in their second year of an associate's degree program also participate in the Top of the Hill lunch series, where each student is in charge of all aspects of at least one lunch menu. These are elaborate, themed buffets with multiple courses that showcase students' best talents.

Those planning on attending the open house are asked to RSVP at or call 715-365-4451, 1-800-544-3039, ext. 4451; TTY 1-800-947-3529 or 711 relay.
