We have had so much fun with our corporate groups! From NBA teams to laywers and software engineers, building and equipment manufacturers, to the people in the top of their field in medicine. What an experience it’s been working with all of you!!!

The best dinner I ever had – Michael Jordan

I was the Food Editor at Oprah, so I’ve eaten at a lot of good places. The passion and knowledge behind this event was out of this world. You and your team blew it out of the PARK! 🙂

Thank you!! – Rachel Hofstetter

I and our events team always recommend you so I am glad that more and more of our clients are recognizing you now. Thank you for giving our past groups with you a great experience and looking forward to hearing from the future ones!

Yes! There’s a lot of food science behind what you’ve been doing. How much of it has been explained to you? Over the years we’ve had so many students with over 10 years of experience cooking professionally take our courses. They’ve loved the culinary school experience and it has helped them make sense of recipes they’ve been using. Understanding the proper techniques will also help you tweak recipes to get better results. (Sad but true – many recipes are just plain wrong).

Yes. In fact, the founder of Park City Culinary Institute, Laurie Moldawer, went to culinary school because she didn’t know how to cook. Her friends in college would tease her for eating out every night. And to this day, she still eats out! But she loved attending culinary school, and learning how to cook. For her, cooking lessons are cathartic and relaxing. She’s taken cooking classes all over the world, and wants nothing more than to attend her own culinary school one day.

Most courses just provide videos. We don’t do that. Our online programs are just like live classes! Every minute that you’re cooking we are with you. We send each student a tripod so that you can set your phone’s camera to face your workstation. Using a live video feed, we watch every step you take as you’re cooking. Our Chefs are not only going to demonstrate what you need to do, but will also guide you as you do it. If you have a question while you’re cutting or mixing, we are there to answer it. In real time. And when you’re done with your dish, the Chef will review it and let you know how you did with guidance on how to get even better next time.

If you’re exploring other online schools, ask them if they do this. They probably don’t.

We care about quality. Most culinary schools are government funded. We are independent. As a boutique culinary school, we can invest more in our students – and make sure you have a great experience!

Our online courses combine pre-recorded video with live Zoom labs. The demonstrations are pre-recorded. Your time cooking is live with a Chef on Zoom.

Plan on spending approximately 30-90 minutes before each lab watching the videos at your leisure. You’ll need to shop for your ingredients and make sure you have the right equipment. Then pull everything out and log into your Zoom lab at the scheduled time. Each Skills Lab on Zoom takes 3 hours. The only time commitment that is fixed is this 3-hour lab each day. Everything else can be done at your leisure.

In total, nearly 75% of each class is done live. The rest of your hours are done at your leisure.

Most groceries are going to be easy to find, but if you can’t find something we can usually help you find a substitute. For example, if you can’t find shallots, you may be able to use a red onion for that recipe.

We offer payment plans. You can start online with just $195 down.

You can enroll in our Fundamentals course in less than 5 minutes. To apply for one of our professional courses, you would need to fill out our online application which takes about 15 minutes. We ask questions to learn whether you’re a novice or experienced cook, and what your goals are for your program. This is so that we can tailor the course to you! Our Admissions Committee will review your application and generally get back to you within a day or two.
