Our Story

Nestled in the Vineyards Estate amongst the beautiful Durbanville Winelands the campus first opened its doors in 2012 and was taken over in 2015 by new and the current ownership. Our passion for our students, our love for the industry and the great honor to be of service to so many young people looking for the ideal school to assist in making their future dreams come true, is the main reason why the Culinary Institute of Cape Town came about.

At the Culinary Institute of Cape Town, we provide a practical introduction to cooking skills and knowledge, in an environment that is fun but informative. Our lecturers are relaxed, yet professional and our small classes are a mix of hands-on practical classes, cooking demonstrations combined with exciting theory classes.

Our dream is to change the lives of young aspiring chefs and assist them to become not only self-sustainable but also successful role-players in the industry. We want to equip them with more than just a few basic skills, but inspire them to work towards a purpose and passion-driven future while making a difference, one plate of food at a time!

The Culinary World needs YOU.
YOUR passion.
YOUR flavour.
Make it happen!
