CASA Culinary Schools in California

Our California Culinary School locations will help you hone your talent and build skills.

Do you want to pursue a career in the culinary arts as a chef or other culinary professional? There are a number of California culinary schools to choose from, but they can be costly. If you really want to acquire culinary expertise and in-the-industry connections, you don’t have to attend expensive four-year universities or trade schools. In fact, prior to the advent of the culinary arts school, chefs became chefs through a system of apprenticeship in which they advanced in rank as they perfected their cookery skills.

The Chef Apprentice School of the Arts has many locations throughout California, puts you in a real-world kitchen, and offers debt-busting tuition rates so you don’t have to take on massive debt. Our accelerated programs mean you can start your culinary career in a matter of months – not years. Don’t talk yourself out of the life you want to live. Take a look at our locations and take the first step on your journey to a career in the culinary arts.

Cody Woodside

After years working as a key member of an internal producing team for Scripps Network where he worked on content for HGTV and Travel Channel, Cody Woodside found himself merged out of a job when Scripps was acquired by The Discovery Channel. Rather than seek something else in production, Cody saw the forced hiatus as an opportunity to delve into the culinary arts in the CASA Schools Gourmet Chef program.
