Culinary Institute of Europe



We teach – and if necessary, re-teach – the basic techniques in line with the most recent trends in gastronomy.

It’s not a problem if you have attended courses before, and being an utter beginner is just fine.


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.

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.

Our school is state accredited, and you will recieve a state certification of commis chef upon successful completion of the C.I.E. curriculum,  300 practical internship hours and passing the state exam.​
