California School of Culinary Arts

CSCA has fast become a respected culinary and hospitality school. Our expertise, along with the ever-growing influence of our graduates, is helping to set the bar for the future and beyond. Founded in 1994, the CSCA faculty includes highly respected, experienced chefs who have the ability to turn out confident and successful graduates. We are part of a small percentage of culinary schools in America to partner with internationally renowned Le Cordon Bleu - the leading authority on culinary techniques, training, and development for over a century. CSCA offers the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu diplôme training through three different programs: Associates of Occupational Studies Degree in Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts, Le Cordon Bleu Pâtisserie & Baking Diplôme Program, and Associate of Occupational Studies Degree in Le Cordon Bleu Hospitality & Restaurant Management.

Our school is located in one of the most famous and dynamic areas of the nation - Los Angeles. It's a multi-cultural, creative landscape that's produced nearly as many culinary trends as hit movies. In local farmers markets you might rub elbows with celebrity chefs shopping for ingredients for their signature dishes or looking for inspiration for their next TV food show segment. The surrounding agricultural valleys produce some of the finest ingredients for our future chefs and hospitality managers: from the established wine industry in the Santa Inez Valley, to the organic farming movement in Ventura County, to the booming wine community in Temecula just south of LA. Few other cities offer such a wealth of culinary and hospitality career opportunities, with a robust resort industry, high-profile restaurants, and catering to members of the entertainment industry.

Our Pasadena Campus, located in the historic Playhouse District, is only 20 minutes from downtown Los Angeles and is the center of the School. Excited, determined students flow through our hallways into our teaching/lecture kitchen labs and classrooms. Our labs feature industry-current commercial equipment and are designed for maximum efficiency, usability and comfort. They offer a great proving ground to replicate the kind of fast-paced environment our graduates can experience on the job. This building also houses our Learning Resource Center, an important facility for both students and culinary professionals throughout Southern California, providing current information available to industry professionals.

This campus features our popular 561 Restaurant, where our students gain practical, real-world experience while showing off their skills. This building also houses the informal School Café and the Campus Cookstore.

At CSCA you'll receive practical, hands-on training and upon graduation, the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Diplôme, the industry standard for excellence. Courses are taught at succeeding levels under the technical guidance and close supervision of skilled Chefs. Students are encouraged to explore their own styles, creativity and cultural background. If you're looking to start a career in culinary arts or train in the growing hospitality and restaurant management industry, look no further than CSCA.
