County Prep Culinary Arts students visited Hudson County Communit
y College multiple times from September through December to participate in the “Extended Culinary Student for the Day” program. The students reported to HCCC at to cycle through the various culinary labs to gain exposure to the post-secondary culinary arts program and to “feel” what it is like to be a college student. They also had the opportunity to interact with the professors and to partake in “hands-on” activities in the various kitchens. At the conclusion of each visit, the students attended a luncheon in the dining hall that was served and prepared by the culinary college students. Overall, it was an invaluable structured learning experience that defined a potential career option for our students.
