Culinary Arts - Clearfork Academy

Culinary Arts refer to a craft in the Western world developed during the Renaissance. Frenchman Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin led the study of culinary arts in Europe. He is known for the quote “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” Later, this saying was simplified into “You are what you eat.”

What is Culinary Arts?

Culinary arts, in which culinary means “related to cooking,” refer to more than the art of cooking. It includes all aspects of a meal, including preparation, cooking, and presentation of the food. In a therapeutic environment, this art combines the process of putting together a meal with elements of therapy and treatment.

Moreover, culinary classes can offer specific cooking methods and techniques that help place a beginner on the path to becoming a culinary artist. In fact, culinarians—one of the key culinary terms—study food science, nutrition, and diet, leading to culinary creations that are pleasing to the eye as well as to the palate. Since the late 19th century, culinary arts have become a prominent part of American culture.

Furthermore, this type of therapy turns cooking into a means of therapeutic expression. In such a context, it is not about the dish that is made, but rather the process through which culinary creations are prepared. In culinary arts classes, students can practice attention and intention, focusing the mind on a tangible task. Therefore, this type of therapy is used to help treat depression anxiety, and other mental health challenges.
