Santa Rosa Junior College's Culinary Arts Program provides an intensive course of study leading to certificates of completion in several exciting areas. Rigorous and comprehensive, these programs prepare students for entry into the professional food industry. The curriculum integrates classical and modern culinary techniques with strong kitchen management skills. Classes are scheduled in 8-week blocks, allowing more frequent entry into the program. Many of the Culinary Arts faculty are professional chefs with extensive backgrounds in the food business. Several are graduates of professional culinary academies.

All Culinary Arts courses are held at the B. Robert Burdo Culinary Arts Center at 1670 Mendocino Avenue across from the Santa Rosa campus.This 22,000 square foot facility is also the location of the SRJC Culinary Café Bakery where students receive practical, hands-on experience working in a commercial kitchen, retail bakery, and restaurant open to the public.
