First Class Program in Italy’s Best Location: Calabria The Mediterranean Dream
There is no need to search a map with a magnifying glass to find our Institute. Our location in Italy is Europe’s gastronomic powerhouse of natural raw ingredients.

Three thousand years of history and its location in the heart of the Mediterranean has positioned Calabria as a center for Mediterranean cuisine. Calabria’s versatile history of Barons and Lords, conquerors and liberators, pirates and religion have all contributed to one of the most diversified cuisines in Italy. As a crossroads of culture, Calabria offers a unique insight into Italian regional Cuisine, and, most importantly, the different cultures that continually affect the evolution of their respective cuisines.

A highlight of this educational experience features dinners at some of Italy’s most unique restaurants in order to give the professional student a complete view of fine European cuisine. The program is truly First Class and everything is included in one price inclusive of all meals with wines and accommodations at a fine hotel or exclusively in private villas.

Equipped with progressive facilities, the Institute is completely financially independent utilizing no government funding or corporate sponsorships ensuring efficiency and consistency. Since we are not sponsored, we are not obligated to endorse any products enabling client chefs to gain an objective knowledge of Italian products. Custom programs can be tailored to meet specific necessities.
