MPHS Culinary Arts have the recipe for success
The MPHS campus restaurant, The Tiger Den, is open for business! Under the guidance of Chef Kathleen Anker, Practicum in Culinary Arts students operate an actual working restaurant in front of the newly renovated Mount Pleasant High School. The restaurant is open for business every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. The menu changes periodically to allow the students the experience of making various dishes.
For the opening week, the menu included a choice of entrée between Loaded Linguini Alfredo or Spaghetti, both with a side salad, and a selection of dessert options between Sicilian Cheesecake or a Ghiradelli Brownie. Your drink was either water, sweet or unsweet tea, Coke, Coke Zero, or Dr. Pepper to drink, all for just $8.00.
Students in the MPHS Culinary program begin in Introduction to Culinary Arts, designed to provide training opportunities in the food service and hospitality industries. Instruction includes training in primary food production, nutrition, sanitation, and restaurant management and services. From there, students can continue into a two-period Culinary Arts course that begins with the fundamentals and principles of the art of cooking and the science of baking.
Finally, as third-year students, they can continue into a two-period Advanced Culinary Arts course that extends content and enhances skills introduced in Culinary Arts.
The Advanced Culinary Arts students prep the ingredients served in the restaurant. Finally, fourth-year students can complete the program in a three-period Practicum in Culinary Arts class that combines classroom instruction with actual business and industry career experiences. The Practicum students are responsible for all aspects of running The Tiger Den, from cooking and plating to taking orders, serving, and finally, cleaning at the end of the day.
For you to dine at The Tiger Den, park in front of Mount Pleasant High School, and the restaurant is located on the far left side when looking at the building.
The Tiger Den operates its own Facebook page where they announce menus and additional information such as unexpected closures. For the latest info, follow them by searching for The Tiger Den – MPHS Culinary Arts on Facebook.
