Culinary Schools in Philadelphia 2015

Philadelphia is a sophisticated palate with a diverse collection of culinary schools! The city features Chef driven restaurants such as Mustapha Rouissiya’s Figs, Peter Woolsey's Bistrot La Minette, and Dave Clouser’s Sola. As a frequent visitor to Philly, we highly recommend this city to any future chef.




The Philly food scene has come a long way since this invented-in-Philadelphia phenomenon--the Philadelphia cheesesteak. But it is still popular and variations are found in fast food chains to gourmet dining restaurants.
