National Culinary Arts Month
Join us in celebrating National Culinary Arts Month for the month of July, recognizing culinary professionals that strive to bring innovative and unique dishes to the world! Our American Academy of Culinary Arts at PTC is dedicated to preparing students for careers in the culinary field where they can explore and contribute to the innovation of an extremely diverse profession.
2021 Culinary Arts Graduate Trevor Hart
When Trevor decided to leave his small town in Ohio to attend college in Pittsburgh, PA, never did he imagine he’d be flying across the Atlantic to intern in the French Riviera! Living with a host family in Montpellier, France, he is spending his first two weeks being immersed in the language and culture. Then, it’s off to the kitchens of Le Bistro Du Clos and Le Clos St. Pierre, a fine dining restaurant with two Michelin stars. Trevor says, “Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do something in this life.”
Culinary Arts Graduate Austin Ayers
Austin is living his dream. After earning a Culinary Arts associate degree from PTC, he opened a family restaurant in his hometown called La Mangia, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as desserts. One reviewer commented, “The baked goods and especially the cheesecakes are out of this world AMAZING!” Check out La Mangia’s Facebook page for posts and pictures of their daily specials.
