Texas State Technical College

50 years ago, Governor John Connelly predicted we would become “the most sophisticated technical-vocational institute in the country.” At TSTC’s Culinary Arts, we teach both basic and specialised culinary principles and techniques. Featuring hands-on experience in food preparation, menu planning, catering, and artistry of baking, pastry and plating. Our graduates find their careers in a variety of areas from running their own business to institutional cooking. We offer three Culinary Certifications and AAS degree in Culinary Arts with articulation with Texas State Universities. Today, TSTC is constantly working on the most efficient educational delivery with micro certifications and partnerships with higher education institutions.


Agader operates in the Food, Beverage and Service Sector and promotes global cuisines, especially Turkish cuisine and provides professional training for culinary artists providing the necessary information flow in the professional development of young chefs. The association works with schools to inspire and encourage the next generation of cooking professionals. The association is represented in national and international competitions and is proud to be the most institutionally known association in the sector.
