  • B.H.M.S. upgraded its culinary facilities and added a new, state-of-the-art training kitchen to the existing production kitchen. In this stress-free environment, culinary students in each year of the program have the chance to acquire and practice core culinary skills and competencies before applying them to a real food production kitchen environment.
