Student Testimonial

"The reason that I chose CAI over other culinary schools was because of the location, the less-expensive tuition and the smaller class size, which creates a wonderful student/teacher ratio. Three benefits of the CAI have been the willingness of fellow students to share their creative sides with me, that everyone I have come across is also following their passions and dreams, and that I have had chef instructors who have taken the time to care about my future, and have possessed wonderful patience to allow us to find our rhythm in their kitchens. The thing that I have liked most about my experience at the CAI is the friendships I have made along the way...."
