Are you looking for a new career in the culinary or pastry arts? Do you want to cook like a chef and discover world cuisines in a great professional setting? See all the possibilities at ICASI.

Feed your culinary inner chef with an exciting new career at ICASI, The International Culinary Arts & Sciences Institute, one of Ohio best private culinary school. We offer an excellent, extensive, flexible and affordable culinary career close to home in Cleveland, Ohio.
A career in the culinary arts seems to be a safe bet - it's an industry that's hard to outsource. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall job opportunities are holding steady and are expected to remain that way through 2020. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that as of May 2010, the median annual wage of chefs and head cooks was $40,630. That depends, of course, on the path graduates choose. Your culinary career begins with new students choosing between culinary or pastry art, and whether you want to earn a certificate or a diploma and it doesn't end until you are fully prepared for a career beyond the back of the house.
Chef Tim McCoy education director of ICASI, said the school sends students into the real world with real-world skills - the business aspect of running a kitchen, the human-resource aspect of hiring line cooks and sous chefs, and the management aspect of operating a restaurant, catering business or a bake shop.

Local Culinary School Takes a Tasty Turn on Latest Serving of WVIZ/PBS Cooks!
Talented instructors and alumni from Northeast Ohio’s International Culinary Arts & Sciences Institute (ICASI) will share some of their most comforting, tasty and doable dishes during “L is for Luscious Learning,” the brand-new edition of WVIZ/PBS Cooks! premiering Saturday, Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. on WVIZ/PBS.

Stefanie and 10 other chefs who studied and/or teach at ICASI will each demonstrate one of their favorite recipes—such as Texas Short Rib Stew, Butternut Squash Soup and Mocha Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce—live on the air. In addition to being delicious, each dish promises to be simple to prepare. Each chef’s recipe, along with more than 100 additional savory and sweet submissions from the chefs, will be included in a cookbook especially compiled to complement this episode of WVIZ/PBS Cooks! The new “L is for Luscious Learning” cookbook will be available as a thank-you gift for a pledge to WVIZ/PBS during Saturday’s the broadcast.
