Why the ICA

At the Institute of Culinary Arts we cultivate chefs who breathe inspiration and innovation into the culinary world.

There has never been a more exciting time to enter the international culinary fraternity. The hospitality industry is experiencing record growth and South Africa is a particularly popular destination.

Food itself is also being taken a lot more seriously – not only have we seen the rise of celebrity chefs, there is also a growing public interest in quality ingredients and local flavours and cuisines.
