Culinary Arts

About the Class

Great restaurants are known for their chefs, and great chefs are known for their education. This program lets you see what it is like working in a restaurant - our own! This is a fast paced, hands-on class, with emphasis on Classical Culinary Techniques, under the direction of a professional chef.

Understand what makes good food great and what makes great food outstanding. Get a glimpse of the skills needed to manage a business. Discover the fun of making wonderful food, providing professional service, and learning valuable, marketable skills.  Successful students can also earn up to 11 college credit for this course through the EdCC Tech Prep program for Culinary Arts.

Meet the Instructor

Becky Pechman

My name is Becky Pechman, and I am the Chef/Instructor of the Culinary Arts Program at Sno-Isle TECH. In my class you will get to work in a commercial kitchen with state of the art equipment, and learn to work in our student run, fine dining restaurant, Le Bistro. You will be working with other students from around the county that have a passion for food and the culinary profession.

I have over 20 years of teaching experience in the Culinary Arts, both here and at Western Culinary Institute in Portland (which is now Le Cordon Bleu, Portland). In addition, I am a Certified Sous Chef and a Certified Culinary Educator, through the American Culinary Federation. Many of my students continue on in their culinary arts education at many accredited programs around the country.

If you haven't already, please take the time to watch the video of my students working in the kitchen and serving in the restaurant. I look forward to meeting you at Open House in February, or at our interviews next March.
