About 52 students in the restaurant management and culinary arts program at Thomas Edison High School of Technology held their annual holiday bake sale prior to Thanksgiving break.

The students baked, packaged and distributed assorted goodies for their sale, including 113 apple and pumpkin pies, 135 pumpkin and New York cheesecakes, 120 dozen oatmeal cookies, 100 dozen coconut macaroons, 90 pounds of peppermint bark, along with 80 pints of cranberry sauce. Proceeds from the sale are invested back into the program.

The Restaurant Management/Culinary Arts program offers students the opportunity to explore the food service industry and acquire the knowledge and skills needed to pursue postsecondary education and careers. This program is certified by the American Culinary Federation, a professional organization that works to enhance professional growth for chefs and cooks.

In a professional kitchen, students study and practice food safety and sanitation principles, professional food-handling and preparation techniques, and quantity preparation.  Students participate in various entrepreneurial ventures through the operation of an in-school café, catering in-school events, and a production bake sale.  Students have opportunities to earn an American Culinary Federation Certified Fundamentals Cook Certification (ACF-CFC), ServSafe Food Protection Manager’s Certification, ServSafe Allergens Certification, and Montgomery County Food Handlers License.
