Leesburg Culinary Academy 2017-18
2017-18 Jacket Cafe'
Leesburg has some new changes in 2017-18 school year. For Culinary Academy we are excited to introduce our new advanced culinary classes.
Students will have the opertunity to choose a career path for thier culinary 4 class. These are broke into 3 sections all are honor credits and students must be recomended to take these options.
The following are the corse options:
1) Hospitality Management and Event Planing
2) Advanced Baking and Pastry
3) Gastronamy and Garde Manger
These corses are rigorous and require extra work for the students. Each one is project based and completion of each section require a set amount of hours. Non attendance in class will result in failure of that corse.
The Jacket Cafe' will serve diffrent menu's to reflect these new classes offering unique and very special dishes. We look forward to serving the public, teachers, parents and special guest. Along with our regular hours Thursday and Fridays from 11am-12:25 we will open for some special reservation only dinners. These diners will showcase students advanced culinary techniques and skills.
Watch for upcoming news and scghedules and what new exciting things the Culinary Academy will be doing.
