About Us

Welcome to CKCA
The Center for Kosher Culinary Arts (CKCA) is the worldwide destination for those seeking culinary education in an uncompromised kosher environment. Students have traveled to study at CKCA from all across the US and from countries as far away as Australia, Panama, Mexico, the UK, Italy, and Canada.

We are the only kosher cooking school outside of Israel to offer career training in culinary and pastry arts. These intensive courses are taught by highly experienced professionals who have been working in the culinary field and teaching others how to work in the culinary field for many years.

CKCA also offers fun, recreational hands-on cooking, baking, and cake decorating classes for men, women, children & teens of all ages and experience levels. Classes are taught by experienced chef instructors and offered during the day, in the evenings, motzei Shabbos and on Sundays.

CKCA chefs are available for on-site demonstrations, private cooking classes, small catered affairs, and personal chef work!! Bring the expertise of a trained kosher chef in to your home or synagogue and impress your friends and neighbors!
