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 them 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 labs include a dedicated butchery and charcuterie lab, small-quantity multi-purpose kitchens, the kitchens of The Humber Room restaurant and two dedicated baking and pastry labs.
On-Campus Restaurant Training Facility
The Humber Room is an on-campus full-service restaurant, where lunches and dinners are prepared by students studying in a culinary program and service is provided by students in a hospitality program. The restaurant is open to the public during the regular school semesters, providing our students with real-world restaurant experience. A $1 million renovation, to enhance the student’s learning experience, was completed in the summer of 2013.
Wine Tasting and Demonstration Lab
The wine tasting and demonstration lab is equipped with its own wine cellar/cooler, a demonstration induction cooking unit, glassware racks, and storage and washing equipment. It is here that you will be introduced to the intricacies of food and wine pairing.
