Not All Students Have the Same Story.

Which is why we created a different school, one where instructors and learners interact as peers…in fact, the kind of school we would want to be taught in. We recognize that food values are changing. Shouldn’t your education reflect this change? And the story of our ingredients is receiving a different kind of attention. Shouldn’t your story deserve the same? At Northwest, learners are key ingredients in our MISSION STATEMENT.

 

That means the best student-teacher ratio, anywhere!

Many schools boast of their impressive student-teacher ratios but we decided to offer better…much better. We offer an 8:1 ratio when we are running at FULL capacity. That said, we know finding the best culinary school is more than ratios, it’s about getting the best education. Our freedom to put innovative ideas on the table without corporate interference will mean a personalized experience like no other. Read student and chef testimonials here.

Take away a wider range of skills and choices.

To become a chef today requires more than getting your apron dirty. So we added a practical farm-to-table component to our curriculum. We investigate the wisdoms of ancient food practices as well as modernist techniques, and encourage our students to think – and step – outside the box.
