New School of Cooking has been the right choice for anyone serious about food.

There are many things to consider when you are searching for the right school to learn to cook or bake.


We base our teaching on a combination of classical and modern cooking through contemporary concepts in a technique-based approach. Recipes are important but mastering skills involves hands-on learning. Our graduates can walk into any kitchen and feel right at home with the training they have received.

If you just want to learn to cook or bake better New School has a program, class or series for every skill level and area of interest from single-themed classes and series to our highly-regarded 20-week ProCooking and ProBaking.

If you are looking for a school for career-training in California it is important to ask if it is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. This approval means the school meets the highest standards and the credential you earn is recognized by employers. Our full-time professional programs in culinary arts and baking and pastry arts are approved by the State of California. In fact, New School of Cooking is the only independent, State-approved culinary school in Los Angeles.


The qualifications of the faculty matters. The teachers at New School all have degrees from respected culinary schools and have worked in the field. They are tested and trained and are committed to providing our students with the best education possible.

The staff at New School is committed to the complete satisfaction and happiness of our students. They are professional, experienced and well-trained. You are surrounded by supportive professionals who will guide you and provide any resources required.
