Cooking in Pennsylvania


A new online guide that is designed to help Pennsylvania residents who are interested in the culinary arts is now open for business.

Pennsylvania Cooking Classes is a new website where residents of Pennsylvania or nearby states can learn about cooking schools and classes being offered in cities around Pennsylvania.

“The field of culinary arts has really seen a dramatic rise in interest during the past few years,” explains website manager Maria DeMars, “While there are probably several reasons for it, I think one big reason is the popularity of the various cooking contest shows on television. These cooking shows make being a chef look exciting and interesting. And while being a professional chef can be a great job, in reality, working in a kitchen and preparing great meals involves a lot of work and preparation.”

The website provides a search form where visitors can look for specialty culinary arts schools or general schools that offer degree or certificate programs in some aspect of culinary arts or hospitality management.

“If a person has always enjoyed cooking, maybe the idea of working in a professional kitchen is something they should explore,” continues DeMars, “Working as a chef or as a restaurant manager is a pretty steady job. Although the specific job may change as restaurants are bought or sold or a new owner comes in, culinary arts professionals are typically able to find new employment quickly.”

Pennsylvania Cooking Classes is an online resource designed for residents of Pennsylvania who are looking for information on careers in the culinary arts and specifics on chef and restaurant management education opportunities in cities throughout the state. For complete information, visit
