A Guide to French Cooking Schools


Visitors: 376

The art of traditional French cooking was popularized by chefs such as Julia Child. All around the world chefs are offering this type of food at five star establishments, showing the talents the learned in school. The most famous of these schools is the Cordon Bleu in France, but that is by no means the only place to study. There are French cooking schools located all around the world, with a large number located in USA and the Vancouver area.

The French Culinary Institute in New York City, New York is one of the most famous of the French cooking schools and one of the best in the USA. This school has a long history of breeding renowned and well known chefs, one of the most famous being Donatella Arpaia. Arpaia has her own show on the Food Network, has published several books over the years and now owns her own Greek restaurant.

The best French cooking schools are the ones that teach students a wide variety of skills and the ones that go beyond traditional French cuisine. Arpaia is a great example of that. The business woman was raised in a Greek home, yet didn't have the skills necessary to run a restaurant. After attending classes at the French Culinary Institute, she learned how the basics of food preparation and was able to use that in her future career.

French cooking schools in USA and in areas like Vancouver, Canada are often offered through a smaller or local school. For example some community and junior colleges offer classes in traditional French cuisine. Many students have also found classes offered in conjunction with restaurants and stores as well. A store and restaurant may offer classes to customers and students that want to learn one dish or skill rather than taking a full course load.

Of course those living in the US or Canada can also attend French cooking schools in France. The schools offer full length programs of study as well as individual classes and internships. The student simply needs to apply for the program and pay the tuition fees or apply for financial aid to pay for the classes. Once accepted they'll study from the masters of French cuisine and learn the skills they need.

French cooking schools are located in nearly every country of the world. These schools focus on training their students in food preparation, learning essential skills and cooking the best French dishes. Students can then go forth into the world knowing that they've learned from the best chefs in the world.
