Sacramento Area Culinary Arts Schools

Sacramento, capital of California, is situated about an hour or so outside San Francisco. This growing secondary city is strong in agriculture and hospitality—keys to any thriving food service industry. In fact you’re not very far from Napa and Sonoma—the chief wine growing region of the country, also a natural companion for food.

The growth in hotel and convention center construction in the Sacramento area over the last few years indicates a higher demand for food industry professionals, including chefs, cooks, all types of kitchen assistants, wait staff and management. Where the hospitality business is booming, jobs for pro cooks and passionate chefs are plentiful.

This is all good news if you’re looking for a culinary arts program in Sacramento. A quick exploration of the region’s top restaurants and chefs—including Randall Selland, Patrick Mulvaney, and Biba Caggiano-- is indication of an exciting and dynamic industry. Go to culinary school in Sacramento and you get the opportunity to study alongside some of the most well-known chefs and owner/chefs in the area. Most of them started their careers as dishwashers and lowly cooks, content to just exist in a professional kitchen. If this describes you then most Sacramento culinary schools will more than get you close to a restaurant, most programs are built around an externship that places you working right in the guts of a kitchen, either in a restaurant, resort, or hotel.
