Humber is home to the Canadian Centre of Culinary Arts & Science, Canada’s leading centre of excellence in culinary education, apprenticeship training, and culinary research and development.
Kitchen Lab Facilities
Humber’s dedicated kitchen labs comprise the most modern facilities in the world. Among the seven on-campus labs are the award-winning Compass Group Canada culinary demonstration theatre and kitchen lab, and the Garland and Mandarin induction cooking labs, all of which feature a high-tech exhaust system, a theatre-style seating area, a cooking demonstration area, and liquid crystal display (LCD) screen TVs. Other kitchens include a dedicated butchery and charcuterie lab, small quantity multi-purpose kitchens, The Humber Room restaurant kitchen, and two dedicated baking and pastry labs.
On-Campus Restaurant Training Facility
The Humber Room is an on-campus full-service restaurant, where lunch and dinner is prepared by students studying in the culinary program, and service is provided by students in the hospitality program. The restaurant is open to the public during the regular school semesters, providing our students with a real-world restaurant experience as a part of their program. A $1 million renovation to enhance the student learning experience was completed in the summer of 2013.
Wine Tasting and Demonstration Lab
Equipped with its own wine cellar/cooler, a demonstration induction cooking unit, glassware racks, storage and washing equipment, this is where you are introduced to the intricacies of food and wine pairing.
