  • It is a great culinary program that teaches you many skills to be well rounded in the culinary field. It's also great because in addition to the culinary program you can still enjoy all the other aspects of normal college universities. You can be active in culinary activities outside of school along with an array of many other social and educational clubs.
  • Chef John Folse Culinary Institute is on of the few culinary schools where you get such close one-on-one attention that bigger schools cannot provide their students with. I never once felt rushed or pressured. They took things slow when I needed extra helped and I learned a lot more because of this. I am fortunate to have been able to go to this school.
