    CIA Meal Plans in New York

    A CIA Educational Dining Experience

  • The CIA Meal Plan: Part of a 360° Culinary Education

    Within CIA’s living learning lab, you acquire skills not only to produce—but also to dine—from the educational production kitchens. In turn, you learn by expanding your palate, experiencing a wide range of global cuisines, and evaluating your peers’ work.

    This hands-on dining experience will help you to focus the future direction of your culinary education—where you will eventually be in those production classes creating meals for other students.

    Students’ daily patronage of production kitchens helps CIA to achieve educational goals for all students—cooks and diners—and promotes sustainable food practices by reducing waste.
