Dine at Elevation

Preparing the next generation of industry leaders is a community endeavor at Cascade Culinary Institute (CCI). Elevation, CCI’s student operated restaurant, serves as the capstone course for students and an opportunity for community members to enjoy sustainable cuisine with a farm-to-table emphasis.

Elevation connects the public and students as an integral part of the curriculum. At the conclusion of the meal, patrons are actively engaged in a survey, where they can provide feedback about their dining and service experience. The guest feedback is then integrated into the instructional process in order to influence both individual and group learning.

Student learning outcomes in Elevation focus on developing confidence in cooking and service techniques, effective communication skills, and teamwork, as students prepare for a transition to their career path in the hospitality industry.
