The big question: What sets US apart?
Northwest Culinary Academy was built with a chef instructor’s - not a corporate - mindset. Our approach is simple: we teach the way we would want to be taught. Period.
We, the owners are your instructors as well as your admissions and placement officers. We will work with you from enrolment, through your instruction, to your employment, and throughout your career. Our reputation is built on your success.
We focus all our energy to only one group, one intake of students per term, not more.
As the instructor/owners of an intimate school, we teach our curriculum with freedom – the same freedom with which a chef/owner of an intimate fine dining restaurant requires to perform his/her ideas to the fullest.
