What is A Culinary School

Culinary art is the art of preparing and/or cooking foods.

The word "culinary" is defined as something related to, or connected with, cooking or kitchens.

A culinarian is a person working in the culinary arts.

A culinarian working in restaurants is commonly known as a cook or a chef.

Culinary artists are responsible for skillfully preparing meals that are as pleasing to the palate as to the eye. Increasingly they are required to have a knowledge of the science of food and an understanding of diet and nutrition.

They work primarily in restaurants, fast food chain store franchises, delicatessens, hospitals and other institutions. Kitchen conditions vary depending on the type of business, restaurant, nursing home etc.

A cooking school or culinary school is an institution devoted to education in the art and science of food preparation.

It also awards degrees which indicate that a student has undergone a particular curriculum and therefore displays a certain level of competency.

Cooking schools are often associated with public restaurants where a student can acquire experience in working in a real environment and perform in many roles.
