The CulinaryLab Cooking School originally opened in Anaheim in January 2016 but then moved to their current location in Tustin.
Orange County will witness a modern approach to culinary education when CulinaryLab, a contemporary cooking school, welcomes its first students in Fall 2015. Located at the Anaheim Packing House, CulinaryLab is the first school of its kind to combine a local chef-inspired curriculum, tech-savvy training, hands-on learning, and a sustainable food philosophy. CulinaryLab differs from other training programs in the region by offering an immersive, hands-on approach that not only includes 28 weeks of professional chef-led training, but also incorporates an apprenticeship in a restaurant kitchen alongside some of Orange County’s most noted chefs. Local Chef Partners currently include Mark McDonald, Chef/Owner of Old Vine Café; Carlos Salgado, Chef/Owner of Taco Maria; Jason Quinn, Chef/Owner of Playground; Peter Petro, Executive Chef of Bosscat Kitchen and Libations; and Ashley Guzman, Pastry Chef at North Left.
