Culinary Arts Diploma

At the academy we use only the finest methods of training and ingredients to educate our aspiring chefs as well as provide them with the perfect start to a successful career in a professional kitchen with their Culinary Arts Diploma.

Not only does the Culinary Arts Diploma include training students how to cook using the classical French method, but also teaches them the financial side of running a kitchen. They are given only the highest quality of ingredients to experiment with such as foie gras, Iranian caviar and Italian truffles, to name a few. This enables students to understand the unique tastes and textures of five star ingredients so that when they go on to work with similar ingredients in top kitchens around the world, they will be familiar with them. Students at the academy are able to practice their skills in our working kitchen which is also our very own onsite restaurant, Prue Leiths.

As part of the curriculum students also cover an in-depth finance module, making us the only chef training institute in the country where this module is taught by Chartered Accountants. As part of this module students are also required to put together a business plan. Many of our students have gone on to put their business plans into motion and start successful business ventures of their own.
