The CASA Gourmet Chef Program

Why pay up to 100K for 4 years in a traditional culinary program in a classroom or lab with 40+ students when you can train 1-on-1 with a renowned top chef in their restaurant and be certified in 6 months for less than ¼ of the cost?

Learn One on One and Privately from a PRO CHEF. We call this Culinary Bootcamp. 25 hours of private one-on-one instruction.
While you are working with a PRO, study at home and create culinary creations from our family of Pro Chefs.
Cook over 134 recipes created by PROS crafted just for our students.
Get placed inside a professional restaurant anywhere in the U.S. and finish your studies off as an apprentice, in the real world.
Engage with TWO PROS – a PRO CHEF who is your Mentor and an Academic Facilitator who is your Career Coach from the first day you enroll.  Work with these two professionals to realize your dream.
You Graduate in 6 Months (24-Weeks) for 1/4 of the price* of traditional culinary programs.
