An Appetite for Healthy Lifestyles and Fine Dining

Our San Francisco cooking school is located in the heart of San Francisco, a cosmopolitan city surrounded by breathtaking mountain and ocean views. Students can explore neighborhood after neighborhood of colorful cultures, unique shops and great food – from family-style Italian fare in North Beach to the authentic cuisine of America’s largest Chinatown, to fresh seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf and sidewalk cafes everywhere. San Francisco has the highest number of restaurants per capita in the nation, and is within a short drive of the world renowned vineyards in Sonoma and Napa Valley. San Francisco is truly a fantastic city to attend culinary school.

San Francisco residents embrace healthy lifestyles, and the climate and location make every outdoor recreational activity possible – surfing and scuba diving in the Pacific ocean, hiking and mountain biking on nearby trails, and running or walking up and down city sidewalks whose elevations rival some mountain trails.
