Division of Culinary Arts
Bearden Productions' culinary program began in the Fall of 2016. Since then we have taught hundreds of children basic culinary skills that will last them a lifetime. Our partnership with Pulaski Technical College Culinary and Hospitality Division has helped us obtain some of the best culinary instructors and curriculum.
