Arctic College Cambridge Bay offers new culinary arts program


Nunavut Arctic College is offering a new culinary arts program at its Cambridge Bay campus. This two-year culinary program will teach students about kitchen safety and how to prepare different hot and cold meals, pastries, and sauces. The program will also explore opportunities to integrate elements of Inuit culture by incorporating traditional foods into the curriculum. “I would love to see this program take it to the next level where culinary becomes a staple up here in Nunavut, as well as learning to incorporate the foods from the land within the culinary style of cooking,” said Andy Poisson, lead instructor of the culinary program. “That would be very unique.”
