Like a busy kitchen in the midst of a dinner rush, students and faculty from the San Jacinto College culinary/restaurant management program are cooking up contemporary and classic culinary concepts to the delight of foodies everywhere.

This academic year, San Jacinto College students from both the North and Central Campuses placed second and third out of five schools in the Hops & Hogs competition at St. Arnold's Brewery; took home the highest award at the Pasadena Taste of the Town; and participated in such events as Pasadena Night of Cuisine, the Truffle Challenge through Les Dames D’Escoffier and pop-up restaurants across the city. Not only did these events serve as a way to give students real-world kitchen experiences, they served as scholarship opportunities as well.
