Learn about our Fall 2021 Enthusiast Program

Rockland Community College’s Hospitality and Culinary Arts Center is located downtown in the iconic river village of Nyack, NY.

Hospitality and Culinary Workforce Development

At its focus, the Center offers credit and non-credit degree programs, with hospitality and culinary tracks. Students learn in a state-of-the-industry teaching kitchen with restaurant-quality equipment, receive instruction from talented professionals, and experience the business operations of the Center first-hand.

Professional Features

In addition to the teaching kitchen, the Center features a theater with a professional kitchen stage for events and demonstrations, meeting room rental space and the Hudson Market on Main, which offers freshly prepared foods for dine-in or take-out, and a variety of retail products from the Hudson Valley.

Hudson Valley Region Culinary Scene​

The Center strengthens the local foothold of artisanal foods, craft beverages and agro-tourism originating from the Mid-Hudson Valley region, and supports community initiatives for Rockland County residents and nearby friends.

Community Programs

Culinary Summer Youth Program is offered at the Center, where children who love to cook will learn kitchen and cooking basics, use of kitchen equipment, proper sanitation and knife skills. The Hudson Market on Main partners with the local Gentle Giant Brewing Company in Pearl River, NY, and area eateries for On Tap, a virtual beer and food tasting program. Visit the Hudson Market page in the coming months for more programming.
