Sudbury – Collège Boréal has officially launched its new Culinary Arts program (Arts culinaires – cuisinier).

This new program is being offered to entering students in September 2011 at Collège Boréal’s new Institute of Culinary Arts and Hospitality.

In a statement, the school noted "Arts culinaires – cuisinier is aimed at developing professionals capable of preparing entire meals, specific menus, as well as special meals prescribed by dieticians." In addition to the basic health and safety requirements, an option dealing with the teaching of wines will be offered through the Canadian Food and Wine Institute at Niagara College. So far, two new articulation agreements have also been entered into which will provide students the opportunity to further their studies at Niagara College.

Collège Boréal President, Denis Hubert, stressed the importance of such a partnership: “Thanks to its new Institute of Culinary Arts and Hospitality, Collège Boréal will offer a new innovative professional development opportunity for adults and students entering from the various school boards. The combined efforts of the staff from the Central-South-western sites of Collège Boréal and Niagara College have enabled the implementation of a tangible solution to broaden in a meaningful way the professional aspirations of our students.”

Dan Patterson, Niagara College President, was particularly enthusiastic about this exciting partnership: “With Collège Boréal’s philosophy and reputation for teaching excellence, Niagara College is delighted to be involved with this important expansion project. Niagara College has always prided itself on providing students with a learning experience focused on personal growth and global awareness. Sharing resources and expertise with our Francophone partner is a great fit.”

Collège Boréal also took the occasion to introduce the Manager of its new Institute of Culinary Arts and Hospitality, Simon Le Hénaff. The Manager has more than 30 years of experience in the restaurant business. Mr. Le Hénaff has distinguished himself as Head Chef at some of the major resorts in the Muskokas.

A member of the Canadian Culinary Federation and a graduate of the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec, Simon Le Hénaff has also been guest chef on the TV show “Cooking’s cool” in addition to being secretary and editor for the Muskoka and Districts Chefs Association.
