Culinary students with culinary flag
Welcome to Peterson Culinary Arts!

Under the direction of Mr. Jarrell Fedalizo, Peterson students have an amazing opportunity to explore the exciting world of Culinary Arts! Students learn basic skills, nutrition, safety and sanitation, knife skills, and much more in Intro to Culinary. Second-year students gain experience in culinary competitions as well as restaurant production and catering in Advanced Culinary. Peterson Culinary is also the ONLY middle school in California to hold the California Department of Education's Program of Excellence Award.

Peterson Culinary is an active chapter in FCCLA, formerly known as FHA-HERO, for the past eight years. Students have competed at the region and state level in competitions such as Menu Planning and Table Display, Salad Preparation, Nutrition Education, and Creed Recitation. Peterson has also hosted region 5 competition in 2012 and 2015. Mr. Fedalizo has also served as the CRE Chairperson for region 5 for the past two years.

Peterson Culinary Arts strives to promote 21st century learning through contemporary cooking. Peterson promotes awareness of the program through cross-curricular studies and strong community involvement.
