CIB Methodology

In our style

We love difference, because we know that in order to make things better, first of all they need to change.

Students in a creativity and innovation workshop at the Culinary Institute of Barcelona
  • Student-centered

    Everything at the CIB is designed with you in mind. Our facilities, methodology, content, teachers and even our selection of students.

  • Goal Based

    Product, technique and context are the three cornerstones of your culinary training. Your evaluation is based on how you overcome the periodic challenges that you will set as your objectives.

  • Teamwork

    You will work alongside students of different nationalities, cultures and personal goals in rotating and diverse groups.

  • Experiential

    Not only will you learn about culinary art and techniques, at the CIB you will also receive training to enhance your attitudes and develop the skills that will increase your chances of success in the 21st century.

If you think that a cooking school should teach you how to reproduce recipes, this isn’t the school for you. If we did that, we would simply be teaching you to copy what other chefs have already created.

At the CIB, we believe that chefs should know how to incorporate products using different techniques that suit the context at hand. That’s why we apply our own teaching methodology to our on-site cooking courses, providing you with knowledge from these three perspectives: knowledge of the product, technology and context, so that any student trained at the CIB knows how to handle and manage any situation.

This new way of teaching allows our students to learn much more. Our aim is for them to be able to think, create, develop and innovate in order to transform 21st century gastronomy into a responsible sector.
