Boasting a new and renovated space, George Brown’s Centre for Hospitality and Tourism aims to keep its curriculum current, in consultation with industry.
Based in downtown Toronto, the Centre provides applied education in culinary arts, pastry arts and hospitality and tourism management, bolstering its programme with unique industry partnerships and work placements.
An 18,000-sq.-ft. addition to George Brown Chef School’s facilities features three interactive student culinary labs fitted with industry-standard equipment, and new, interactive smart classrooms and student project space.
Housed in a 3,200-sq.ft. heritage brownstone, The Chefs’ House restaurant provides culinary students with real-world training. The 70-seat space serves lunch and dinner daily; food and wine workshops; special-events space and programming; and a series of culinary excellence awards and educational programmes.
