Italian Cuisine

Certificate in Professional Cook of Italian Cuisine

Culinary Institute Kul IN Culinary Institute Kul IN and partner school ALMA la Scuola Internazionale di Cucina Italiana are offering a new international joint program for students interested in specializing professionally in Italian cuisine. This 9-month program aims to produce fully trained professional cooks who are specialized in the art of Italian cuisine.

The unique curriculum gives students the opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills, which they’ve gained through intensive courses at Kul IN and ALMA, by interning at elite Italian restaurants and hotels. Interning abroad gives students the invaluable opportunity to network internationally and connect with some of the most successful chefs in Italy and the world. 

As a student of Italian Cuisine, you will be completely submerged in Italian culture, learning to speak and understand the language, while perfecting your skills in Italian traditional gastronomy. You will study under the leadership of some of the best Italian chefs in a fast-paced and dynamic international setting.

You will learn about: pastas, wines, regional dishes, history of Italian gastronomy, traditional products and lots of more.

Training in Sisak

The intensive program begins in Sisak, Croatia, at the Culinary Institute Kul IN. Kul IN is a new school, completely supplied with new cookware and the newest culinary technologies. The lesson plans and programs have been created by our dean Zdravko Peric, a professional chef with truly global experience in the culinary industry.

Students will spend 9 weeks in Sisak learning Italian culinary techniques, kitchen management, Italian culture, Italian culinary terminology, and its language.

Training in Colorno

Your education continues at our partner school ALMA in Colorno, Italy. The school’s ALMA Method of training will add a new dimension to your skill development in the kitchen. The program provides a dynamic international environment where students from all over the world study together (in English) and succeed in developing their culinary techniques. With professionally equipped classrooms and industrially equipped kitchens located in Palazzo Ducale, ALMA and its professor-chefs will intrigue you with their knowledge and train you to become truly competent in the culinary industry.

You will learn all the secrets of Italy’s 20 culinary regions, while training under the microscopes of skilled Italian chefs. Your culinary training will be further enhanced by trips to local production centers, which will give you a look into the preparation of famous products such as Parma ham, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, truffles, wineries and many others.

The classes in Colorno are designed based on the ALMA Method which combines the following:

  • understanding of Italian history and culture
  • direct experience with local production centers and raw ingredients
  • cooking skills and technique for Italian cuisine
  • knowledge of Italian recipes and traditions
  • experience as the head chef

5 months of training in a real Italian restaurant

The last part of the program is a stage portion: a five-month internship in a well-known Italian restaurant. After evaluation in Colorno, students will move to the city where they will be interning at a restaurant chosen by ALMA.

During these five months, students will be putting to practice all the skills that they had learned in Kul IN and ALMA, and will gain real experience in the culinary world. ALMA carefully chooses the internship destination, based on individual students’ personalities, interests, strengths and weaknesses, and very importantly, the students’ own expectations.

Throughout the internship, students still have the full support of ALMA, and can always ask the school’s staff for help and advice. The host restaurant will provide the student with room and board for the entirety of the internship.
