One of the best educational experiences of my life. I will always recommend Stratford Chefs School for a great place to learn how to cook. It changed my life!

Stratford Chefs School was where I knew I wanted to get my training to move myself forward in my career and culinary experiences. The intimate ratio of student to instructor is one, among many, of the best things Stratford Chefs School has to offer. I made the most amazing connections with classmates and instructors. The community of the School is one you’ll have for a lifetime. Stratford Chefs School was a life changing experience that set me on a new path in a world of possibilities.

Training under Michelin starred chefs at the top of their game is what first attracted me to SCS; understanding the skill set of a Michelin star chef gives students the ability to be in that world!”
