Students at The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institutes gain hands-on experience in professional kitchens—and many of them build additional practical experience at student-run restaurants within our schools. But what can a prospective student expect to experience during culinary school? A recent event at ten locations of The Art Institutes system of schools helped them to find out.

The "VIPeek" program allowed prospective students and their families to enjoy a dining experience prepared by current students. Prospective students also talked with culinary instructors and current students, and visited the student-run restaurant professional kitchens.

The event not only showcased our current students’ skills, it featured international cuisine—allowing prospective students to get a taste of flavors from around the world.
