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 Chef

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 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
