What Our Students Say

The fact that you don’t have to choose between savory and pastry was a huge selling point for me. I really wanted to be able to immerse myself in the food world.

Megan B.

Class of May ‘18, Cook at 3 Peaks Ranch

I would highly recommend this school. It’s not a ‘chef factory.’ Here things are more personal.

Phillip J.

Class of August ‘18, Cook at Saint Emilion

The experience you get here is not one you can find anywhere else. I’ve talked to people that have attended other culinary schools, and I think I got the best there is.

Lorna B.

Class of August ‘18, Self-Employed Personal Chef

My externship with The Mansion at Turtle Creek was a fantastic opportunity to test the skills I learned in school. It made my transition into the workforce after graduation smooth and straightforward.
