The Culinary Connection Chef School Advantage:

  • One-on-one training
  • Learn inside a real restaurant
  • 100 percent on-the-job instruction
  • Under $15,000

Using our tried and true apprenticeship (externship) method, we pair you with a professional 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 professional 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 Chefs have spoken. They believe one of the best ways to learn the culinary arts is on-the-job–and because of our extensive restaurant connections, they are willing to let our students apprentice (extern) 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.
 

Chef Martin Gilligan Endorses the Culinary Connection“It’s a shame that young people come out of high-priced, cookie cutter culinary schools with few real world skills but a world of debt. Culinary Connection is focused on producing successful chefs without wasted time and unnecessary expense.”
- Chef Martin Gilligan CEC, MCFE, American Culinary Federation’s ‘Chef of the Year 2005’ Los Angeles, CA
