The culinary arts and hospitality career path at Reynolds is all about getting your hands dirty, honing the skills of your craft, and presenting them with style and grace. Many of our graduates work and own restaurants, hotels, and businesses here in RVA.

Reynolds culinary and pastry arts students are perfecting their craft at our new state-of-the-art facility known as The Kitchens at Reynolds - featuring four world class kitchens to learn and demonstrate their trade. The Kitchens also features an urban greenhouse to allow for students in horticulture and sustainable agriculture to grow fresh produce and ingredients used in our recipes and instructional lessons.

Located one mile from our Downtown Campus in the Churchill neighborhood across from The Market @ 25th, the Kitchens is where you learn from award-winning chefs, experienced instructors, and your peers. Class sizes are intentionally small, so you get the attention to detail that you need to stand out in your profession.

Reynolds has prepared many successful entrepreneurs, like Keya Wingfield. Keya is a Food Network Baking Champion, chef, entrepreneur, and Reynolds graduate. Known for her colorful and creative culinary delights, she is Bombay-raised and Richmond-based.
