Culinary Schools in Indiana

Indianapolis is the heart of culinary education in Indiana, so if you’re thinking about getting that kind of degree, that’s the place to be. You can study through a traditional college program, or you could get a little more adventurous and try earning a degree online. If you do that, you don’t have to move anywhere at all. You can learn right from home.

Tips for Choosing a Culinary School

To get the best education possible, you want to figure out how well you are going to be trained. Think about how up to date the text books are that the school uses, and also consider how knowledgeable the faculty is. Then go a step further and study the equipment you’ll be using in the classroom kitchens. If everything looks up to par, you should be good to go.

Learning the Local Food Culture

If you want to work in an Indiana food environment, you have to learn about the culture of the area. That can be done by simply sampling the food around you. Start by going to local diners and restaurants when you want to eat out just to see what’s on the menu. Then go to something special like a food festival in a nearby town. Here are some you might want to look into:

  • Indiana Gourd Society State Show – South Bend
  • BBQ RibFest – Fort Wayne
  • Clabber Girl Brickyard BBQ – Terre Haute
  • Watermelon Festival – Mansfield Village
  • Valparaiso Popcorn Festival – Valparaiso

How to become a certified chef

During your time at school, you will already be developing the skills needed for the work place. To build up more experience, you might want to consider getting involved with some food organizations around so that you might be able to get an internship. You can always get one on your own, but often times these associations will have a better list that what you might find. They may also scholarships, grants and fellowships to help pay for your education. You never know.
