Culinary artists, also sometimes known as culinarians, work in a wide variety of environments, all of them focused on the craft of creating beautiful and delicious food. Such professionals include experts like chefs, cooks, restaurant managers, bakers and caterers. Chefs and head cooks are typically charged with the responsibility of making sure that their fellow chefs are cooking quickly and properly, and they lead their culinary environment by their depth of culinary technique, impressive level of creativity, extensive food savvy, and consistent expertise in putting out satisfying and aesthetically pleasing plates.

Traditional kitchens have system of rank imported from the culinary traditions of France. At the top of the heap is the executive chef, or the chef de cuisine; these are the top professionals in the kitchen for whom diners come to the restaurant, and these chefs sometimes even have their own television shows or other celebrity ventures. At the bottom of the ranking are the line cooks and chefs de garde manger, the professionals who actually do the cooking duties. Other positions that center in the culinary world include food writers, food photographers, culinary entrepreneurs, and teachers in the culinary arts.

The educational path for a career in the culinary arts almost always involves culinary school as a training ground in the techniques necessary to get brilliant work done. Food writers, photographers, managers, and entrepreneurs may opt to earn a bachelor's or master's in a relevant field first, and then later proceed to polish their education with courses in culinary school. Yet another pathway into this career field is through experience and learning on the job. This is most effective for those who begin in the culinary field at an early age. The job outlook for careers in the culinary arts naturally varies depending on the particular demands of the position. But chefs and head cooks, to provide an example, will not be experiencing immense growth in terms of the number of available posts in the future.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Our tuition numbers reflect data collected from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site, GradReports.com.
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
