The methodology

In our style

We love the difference because we know that for things to be better it is necessary to make them different.

Professor at the Culinary Institute of Barcelona applying creative methodologies on the board.
  • Student-centered

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

  • Goal Based

    Product, technique and context are the three axes of your culinary training. Your evaluation is based on overcoming the challenges that will periodically mark you as your objective.

  • Teamwork

    You will work alongside students with different nationalities, cultures and personal motivations on a rotating but always heterogeneous basis.

  • Experiential

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

If you thought a cooking school should teach you how to reproduce recipes, this is not your school. If we did, we would be teaching you to copy, to reproduce what others created.

In CIB we believe that the chef must know how to apply the products with different techniques depending on the context. That is why our methodology treats knowledge precisely from these three axes so that any student trained in the CIB knows how to solve and develop in any circumstance.

This new way of interpreting the teaching allows the student to be able to assume much more than a collection of preset recipes to replicate. Our goal is for students to create new solutions, to create, to innovate, to always find solutions to the problems they will inevitably face in their future.

    When you finish your course, besides the knowledge you will have acquired, you’ll carry with you countless contacts from talented students from across the world and your teachers. It will be up to you to make the most of them.
