Culinary Arts + MooreCo's Thrive Philosophy
What does a culinary arts classroom need?
A fully equipped culinary arts classroom blends the art of cooking with food science, allowing students to master the techniques, flavors, and presentation that define the culinary world. The courses also offer students an invaluable educational experience that will prepare them to thrive inside and outside the kitchen.
Students learn crucial life skills such as time management, communication, teamwork, and adaptability in high-pressure environments. They gain an understanding of nutrition, food safety, and the cultural significance of different cuisines, making them informed consumers and empathetic, worldly citizens. Culinary courses nurture creativity and innovation, encouraging students to experiment with ingredients and develop their own unique culinary style.
How does MooreCo outfit a culinary arts classroom that meets the developmental needs of students?
MooreCo has intentionally designed furnishings to adapt to and support a variety of specialized culinary equipment to keep a busy kitchen safe, clean, organized, and efficient. Ovens, stoves, and refrigerators fit seamlessly with MooreCo’s offering available in custom finishes.
Spacious workstations allow students to practice their skills and give instructors ample space for demonstrations. Ergonomic, comfortable seating offers a quick break and can be tucked away quickly and easily. The sleek, minimal space mimics an energetic, lively commercial kitchen.
Keep valuable cooking supplies secure and organized in a tidy, decluttered kitchen and give students and instructors ample space to chop, dice, mix, and fold.
A kitchen is not complete without a beautiful butcher block. This durable tabletop is mounted on our Compass Cabinets to create the sturdy, customizable Compass Single Cabinet Teacher Workstation and Compass Double Cabinet Teacher Workstation.
Compact Hierarchy Grow Stools® can easily stow under tables when not in use and their subtle wobble movement keeps energy flowing while students take a quick break.
Plan menus, list ingredients, and share recipes on the Hierarchy Grow & Roll Mobile Magnetic Glass Board. The colorful board turns the kitchen into a dynamic, collaborative learning space.
Large screens allow students to watch close-up demonstrations or practice sharing their own techniques.
Sleek and practical, the Hierarchy Grow & Roll Desk height adjusts with the touch of a finger. Young chefs can quickly and easily create an additional workstation, store ingredients, or rest equipment.
