About Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts


Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts offers two diploma-granting professional programs in the Culinary Arts and the Baking & Pastry Arts. Additionally, this culinary centre offers programs for the casual home-chef and industry professionals including intensive wine studies, restaurant operations management and hospitality entrepreneurship.

The onsite restaurant and bakeshop at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts were founded to create a ‘real-world’ training experience for the school’s professional Culinary and Baking & Pastry Arts students. Open to the public five days a week for a la carte dining and available for private events, weddings and catering functions, the restaurant at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts gives guests both a fine-dining experience and a glimpse at the world’s future great Chef’s in training.
