PITTSBORO -- Enrollment is under way for the Summer Natural Chef Certification Program to be held on the Chatham County Campus of Central Carolina Community College.

Classes for the 10-week certificate program begin May 18 and ends July 30, with classes to be held Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:40 p.m.

The Central Carolina Culinary Institute's Natural Chef Certification Program is a dynamic, innovative, and truly unique program.

Students will study holistic nutrition and sustainable culinary techniques. They will work hand in hand with the Central Carolina Community College Student Farm, and other area farmers, to gain real world experience with a farm-to-table approach to sourcing and agricultural stewardship.

Students will matriculate with a comprehensive understanding of sustainable and nourishing food practices, how to prepare delicious and therapeutic foods to avoid illness and promote optimal health, and how to navigate all the equipment and practices of a professional kitchen.

This modern approach to holistic nutrition and culinary arts marries traditional holistic techniques, knowledge, and practice with the latest culinary trends and equipment.

The Summer Natural Chef Certification Program can be taken alone or as a supplement to the Central Carolina Culinary Institute's Culinary Arts Associate Degree, the Culinary Fundamentals Certificate, or the Farm-to-Table Entrepreneurial Certificate.

To register for this program, contact the CCCC Economic and Community Development Division Student Support Center at 919-718-7500.
