Program Overview

Program Description:

Immersing yourself in Spanish while experiencing a new culture through its food is one of the main reasons people love to travel to Latin America. To be able to learn about another culture’s cuisine and how to prepare it yourself is a great opportunity, that should be the goal of every internship abroad, each bite of each meal is a unique blend of tastes, smells, and textures.   Interning abroad in culinary arts is more valuable than completing an internship in your home country, because you can explore a new culture and lifestyle while simultaneously learning about the local foods, cooking methods, and flavors.   You will learn to cook from a variety of Colombian cooks, to include a finalist of Colombia's Best Chef TV Show! 

Interns apply culinary arts skills (food prep, menu planning, customer service, sanitation, food safety) in a workplace setting. Interns will learn:
 

  • Practice kitchen teamwork
  • Mathematics and measurement
  • Reading methods
  • Study food, cooking, dining trends
  • Nutrition and health awareness
  • Ability to make excellent food, even with less-than-ideal or limited ingredients
  • food safety and safe use of tools and equipment
  • creativity when adding their own spin on a certain recipe
