Artistas Apprenticeship Program

Get Paid to Expand Your Culinary Education Training

Our new apprenticeship program is the perfect opportunity for aspiring culinary educators, recent graduates, full or part-time teachers, restaurant industry workers and cooking enthusiasts interested in exploring a career in culinary education.

This is a one-of-a-kind culinary training program where we pay you a competitive hourly rate to learn how to operate fun, engaging and memorable cooking classes in our studio and beyond. 

As part of the program, you’ll be guided by our staff of classically-trained chefs to gain hands-on kitchen skills, expand your professional network and learn from some of the best talent in the industry. You’ll also get the opportunity to meet, mingle and learn from a series of guest speakers, who openly share their experiences about working in food.

We're accepting applications now for the September 2023 - June 2024 cohort!
