So you can go ahead and forget those other schools you may be looking at. We’ll take it from here.

  • Toss aside the baking textbooks and bring on the tech-based learning

Come perfect your baking skills with our modern approach to education. Soon, you’ll be able to flex those newfound pastry muscles for all to see.

Home Cook courses

Maybe you’re not quite ready to leave your day job, but want to attend culinary school for the HOME cook? Then come join us for one of our foundational-focused series classes!

  • Understand how food works and how different ingredients interact
  • Learn from the same experienced chef instructors as our pro students
  • Work on the same professional grade equipment as our pro students
  • Gain tangible useful skills you’ll be able to implement immediately

If you want to drink some wine, follow a recipe, and casually cook some food, we’re not the school for you. But, if you are ready to beef up your cooking chops and become a master in your own kitchen, you’ve arrived at the right place.

About us

We are CulinaryLab®—a LAB where we geek out over our mutual love of cooking and food, and support our students with making their wildest dreams come true. We have turned the traditional model of culinary school on its head, and reinvented culinary education to match up with the modern-day food industry.

Through our contemporary hands-on approach to teaching, small class sizes led by top-notch chef instructors, and immersive apprenticeships, our students are well-equipped to hit the ground running to pursue their juiciest goals.

So roll up your sleeves, slap on that apron, and let’s get COOKING!
