Tomorrow’s culinary professionals are acquiring hands-on training and practical job skills today at The Broadmoor Bistro, a student-run skills application by the students at Broadmoor Technical Center in the Shawnee Mission School District.
Since fall 2000, the bistro has offered dining events created and served by culinary arts students enrolled at Broadmoor Technical Center. Students enrolled in the year-long program log 1,000 hours of industry experience as they learn culinary arts and commercial baking. They apply and refine those skills by creating menus, preparing, serving, and operating The Broadmoor Bistro.
Currently, guests can make weekly dinner reservations for Wednesdays at www.broadmoorbistro.org for a four-course meal ($25/person). The fine dining menu varies each season. Guests are seated in a sophisticated contemporary dining setting.
“The reservation system simulates the pace and operations of a restaurant,” says instructor Chef Bob Brassard. “Students work through a dinner rush that helps them learn whether or not they are prepared. The students receive honest feedback and learn life skills. We provide realism in an educational setting.”
Broadmoor’s culinary and commercial baking programs are one of the top educational secondary programs in the country. The program has produced from one to five national finalists in national culinary competitions annually for seven consecutive years. In that time span, Brassard has guided his students in local and national culinary competitions enabling them to earn over 1.6 million dollars in scholarship monies....more
