  • "It's the best culinary school in the world." Paul Bocuse, world-renowned French chef


  • For more than 60 years, The Culinary Institute of America has been at the apex of the food world. It first opened back in 1946 as the New Haven Restaurant Institute in Connecticut with three instructors; a chef, a baker and a dietitian. It was a vocational school for WWII veterans and offered a 16-week program. As the food industry grew, so did the school. By 1965 the enrollment grew to 400 students. With continued growth, the school needed a larger facility so it moved to a former Jesuit novitiate in Hyde Park, NY where it continues to prosper. In 1981, the CIA became the only school authorized to administer the American Culinary Federation's (A.C.F.) master chef certification exam. The CIA employs the largest concentration of master chefs certified through the exam. Today the CIA currently enrolls more than 2,700 students in its degree programs and employs more than 125 chef-instructors and other faculty members representing 16 countries.
