Culinary Institute of America Tour
Of course, now that you’ve seen one of the finest restaurants this world-famous institute has to offer you need to see the institute itself! The Culinary Institute of America is one of the world’s premier culinary colleges, a highly attended cooking and food business management school that has been open since 1946, providing just over 7 decades of quality culinary education. While there are campuses in Texas, California, and Singapore this one in New York is considered the flagship school by many today, though technically the school started with humble beginnings in Connecticut. Sitting on the east bank of the scenic Hudson River, CIA (Culinary Institute of America) provides an excellent touring and visiting opportunity for anyone, from students and tourists to restaurant patrons and culinary business bound collegiates.
This institute is only 1.5 hours from both New York City and Albany, a convenient and breathtaking drive along Route 9. Once here your group will be able to enjoy ample parking, tons of excellent culinary information, and valuable insight into one of the most respected culinary schools in the world. Students attending CIA can attain their Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Science, Food Business Management, Baking and Pastry Arts, and/or Culinary Arts. If you are a group of high school or high school junior students who are interested in attending the school in the future you should RSVP for a college and campus tour, but if you are just wanting a general public just watch online for upcoming times. During these tours, your group can see behind the scenes views of the classes and onsite eateries, with such popular and iconic spots as American Bounty, the Taber, The Egg, and even an onsite craft brewery and rotating pop-up eatery. If you have enough time during the day of your visit or want to possibly add on an extra day we can look into Cooking and Baking classes for your group as well!
