If you share our passion for creating great food and want to turn that passion into a career, these are your three keys to success. We have over 30 years of experience training students for the rigors of the culinary world and can ensure that you will leave our program with the tools necessary to work in a professional kitchen. Our record speaks for itself. Our graduates work in the finest restaurants in the United States. L'Academie's European and American-trained chefs instruct students in food theory and the technical skills of food preparation. We combine classic French techniques with modern American sensibilities to provide a solid foundation for a culinary career.

L’Academie believes that a student must be well rounded in both the theory and techniques of cooking before applying individual interpretation to develop his or her own creative style. Our students learn through close interaction with instructors as they prepare to enter a variety of culinary professions. L’Academie de Cuisine develops students with the ability to adapt to the changing culinary world in the 21st century.

Not only do students receive hands-on, supervised training, they work independently to enhance their creativity and in groups to develop team-work concepts. The result is a graduate with a firm grasp of both basic and advanced culinary skills, theoretical knowledge, and technical and practical experience - all the tools necessary to join the ranks of great chefs!
