'The Culinary' is a very unique place. One where there is plenty of opportunity, where new doors open every day. Focus, determination, teamwork, and communication are the most important skills here.

My overall experience at the C.I.A was a wonder journey. I have meat a lot of people with the same passion as me, we all worked together in groups for projects or assignments. The teachers are always their for you when you need help they will never turn their backs on someone in need of help.
