Culinary - Baking & Pastry - Hospitality Management Schools in Birmigham
The Birmingham – Hoover Metropolitan Area offers a great quality of life. The housing market and cost of living are among the most affordable in the Southeast. Area schools are nationally recognized among the nation’s best. And even though the state’s largest city is a bustling metropolitan city, Birmingham still holds its southern roots.
Recreational opportunities are abundant with all the cultural attributes of a much larger metropolitan area. Moreover, Birmingham is nestled in the hills and valleys of one of the most beautiful areas of the country. With four seasons, Birmingham is a great place to go play outdoors whether it’s hiking in Oak Mountain State Park, smelling the flowers at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens or canoeing down the Cahaba River.
Birmingham is a city that is rich in history, though sometimes that history is violent and turbulent one. It was the center of the Civil Rights Movement, spawning immense changes in the country’s legal and cultural history. From this city came Martin Luther King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” and the heartbreaking “Ballad of Birmingham,” by Dudley Randall.
From this strife, Birmingham emerged a stronger city, becoming a cultural center, with museums, opera, ballet, theater, orchestras, festivals, and more. Birmingham continues its odyssey for change, with the investment of about one billion dollars into the downtown area.
As a result of its renovation efforts, Birmingham is attracting a vibrant restaurant, retail, and cultural community. There are more than 500 restaurants in Birmingham, so Culinard students will find ample job opportunities upon completion of their programs.
