Welcome to your next life-changing experience—a CIA Boot Camp! Much more than cooking classes, CIA Boot Camps are multiday immersions into the world of food. You’ll learn to cook, bake, and think like a professional chef. You’ll prepare amazing food and meet incredible people who, like you, love the process of creating delicious food. Each of our campuses has its own Boot Camp “flavor.” Why not taste them all?

I suggest that when you sign up for Boot Camp, don’t go with any expectations. Just do your best, have lots of fun, and learn.
