How can one become a successful restaurateur through culinary arts training?

In the ICE Culinary Arts program, students learn the theory, practice, and art of cooking, which can be applied to a wide range of professional careers. Successful restaurant owners know the basic principles of how to manage kitchen operations. These skills include menu design and pricing, kitchen assembly line practices, and health, safety and hygiene requirements for kitchens. Even if you choose to specialize in restaurant management, your culinary arts degree program should also increase your familiarity with different types of cuisine from around the world.

Many culinary arts programs offer associate, bachelor's and master's degrees, as well as diplomas and certificates. The chefs and instructors at the ICE School of Culinary Arts are proud to provide students with the education that matters; they bring decades of experience in real world restaurants to the rich, diverse and welcoming environment of ICE's teaching kitchens. An associate degree from a culinary arts program should include courses on accounting principles, cost control, mathematical skills, and management theory so that you can be confident in your ability to manage the business side of the restaurant. It's no wonder that so many international culinary students have chosen ICE as their passport to a rewarding and successful culinary career.

A degree in culinary arts can help you realize the dream of having your own restaurant and, at the same time, avoid the common problems that cause restaurants to fail.
