Our goal with our practical study classes is to create a well-rounded, well-educated passionate and professional culinarian. 

As a chef you are able to pull together a paycheck or multiple paychecks by wearing different culinary hats. You don’t have to stay in one place, if you don’t want to. 

This also gives you the flexibility to travel around the world working as a private chef or instructor for a local culinary school. 

Not only will you gain a strong technical foundation in cooking, but our training goes beyond the technical and into the heart and soul of the ART of cooking. With our Professional Program, you can expand your dreams to include learning more about these food industry practical study classes. Each category will consist of two weeks’ worth of instruction, and will be taught by industry professionals.
