French Cooking Academy (FCA) courses are unique in that they're based on the classic cooking skills taught in French culinary schools and the techniques developed by the fathers of French cuisine. The courses are also practical and 'hands-on'. This means you practice cooking as you learn, just like you would in a culinary school.

Why enroll online instead of a cooking school
In a nutshell, enrolling in our online program will save you thousands of dollars and the course will teach you pretty much the same things you would learn in a brick and mortar school. Our flagship course Get started with French Cooking will teach you most of the culinary basics and pastry skills that you would learn by enrolling into an official French cooking school to undertake the CAP diploma.
Do I get a diploma or a professional certificate?
like any other private establishment we deliver a certificate of completion, but this is not an official accreditation. It is important to keep in mind that even world renowned French cooking schools for international students do not deliver diplomas or certificates that can be used for professional purpose in France. Even if you paid large sums to enter a flagship cooking school all what you will keep at the end is what has been taught to you.
