Using our tried and true apprenticeship method, we pair you with a Master Chef who will take you through our structured course curriculum and teach you everything you need to know for a rewarding career in the culinary arts. From learning what it takes to prepare exciting dishes to how to appeal to people’s palates, the Culinary Connection proves that creating a memorable dining experience is the essence of a successful culinary education.
Long before people went to schools in order to become a chef, they learned in the kitchen by apprenticing themselves to a Master Chef. We subscribe to this tried and true tradition whole-heartedly.
Culinary Connection places you right in the heat of the action, in an upscale restaurant, hotel kitchen or catering company, where you will learn recipes, techniques and preparation from people who are actually making a living today from a real restaurant. Real Chef’s have spoken. They are not hiring graduates from those other schools. However, because of our extensive restaurant connections, they are willing to let our students apprentice in their kitchens. The best way to get hired is already be on the inside. That’s exactly where we place you from day one.
Culinary Trade Schools are a waste of money. I throw away resumes from kids who were dumb enough to blow $65,000 on them all the time. The apprenticeship method offered at the Culinary Connection is the only way to go. I highly recommend it.”
