The curriculum will give you insight into both the theory and practice of the high art of cooking. You will learn various basic techniques of cooking, frying, roasting and baking, and will be able to use them with confidence. You will gain a comprehensive outlook on the various fields of gastronomy.


We should emphasize that for us, healthy food is not low-calorie food but rather whole food made from fresh, high-quality ingredients from preferably local sustainable agriculture.


Sustainability is reflected prominently in each module - in addition to imparting knowledge, we also strive to instill a mind-set that the entire Institute represents.


This is a one-year course, consisting of an autumn and a spring semester with various offsite activities throughout the year. There are exams on theory and practice at the end of each semester. Theoretical study materials including video  lectures are all online on the Kajabi e-learning platform. Furthermore all ingredients used during the course are also included.  There are no hidden fees at our school.

In order to receive your diploma you need to complete  25 hours of practical internship during the academic year in Budapest. We can assist with your internship placement.
