Students learn a variety of international and classical pastries and desserts using basic and advanced techniques, which meet industry quality standards.

With support from the Savannah Technical College Foundation, the College has purchased 7 West Bay Street as the new downtown location for an expansion of its Culinary Arts program, which will more than double the available instructional space. Senior level (second year) students will take classes and work in the bakery and restaurant. The hands-on, real-world experience in the restaurant/bakery will allow students the opportunity to apply techniques learned in the classroom to practical use, complete a required field placement, and gain first-hand experience in restaurant operations. 


New students are admitted to the baking and pastry program year-round. For more information about Culinary Arts at Savannah Tech visit:
