Cook in a City with More Chefs per Capita than even Paris
With over 100 restaurants, dozens of nearby farms, smokehouses, and artisan cheese makers, Park City, Utah is noted to have more chefs per capita than even Paris. With a faculty of seasoned chefs, our students are immersed in five-star techniques using local ingredients they often pick themselves at local farms.
Our classes take place in a real commercial kitchen, located in prestigious Deer Valley. We have been featured both locally and nationally for our distinctive approach to culinary education. From day one, our culinary classes are hands-on using professional equipment.
We take pride in offering a program that is shorter and more affordable than other culinary schools. Our students have received job offers with increases as high as 17% after just two short months of training. We offer customized career counseling, and access to fun jobs that often include affordable housing, health insurance, international transfers, and free ski passes at Deer Valley and other resorts.
Our European-style programs are attractive to entrepreneurs, as well as to people who want to elevate their entertaining at home. Many of our students already have college degrees, but only a high school degree is required.

Students attending Park City Culinary Institute receive their Certificate after just 8 short weeks. About 25% of the program is pastry, 65% savory, and 10% of our time is spent visiting local farms, meeting with artisans, and learning how to make charcuterie, cheese and wine.
