What kind of tests do I have to pass,and what kind of skills do I have to develop to graduate from a culinary arts school?
I am a very busy senior in high school, and I cannot do as much research as I would like to. When I do graduate from high school, I would like to adopt the trade as soon as possible. Please share some information with me. It will be gladly appreciated. #cooking
I would recommend looking at the websites of various culinary schools.
Le Cordon Blue is a famous one.
The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is another big one.
In the United States, my understanding is that those are the two main ones to aspire to. If you want to do baking, that is a different deal and there are other specialized schools for that.
Seeing what Le Cordon Blue and the CIA want in applicants is a good place to start, and a good way to target your research with the limited time you have.
The Wikipedia articles contain links to the schools at the bottom of the page.</body></html>
Culinary Arts schools often start with basic skills classes like knife skills & stock-making and then move into progressively more complicated techniques. A good school will also mix in classes that are more focused on the business side of the culinary arts including finance and accounting. In addition to those listed above also check out Johnson & Wales, New England Culinary Institute, and French Culinary Institute in NYC.
