You can fire up a new career with help from Auguste Escoffier Schools of Culinary Arts. We offer three programs for careers in the culinary industry, including culinary arts and pastry arts.
OCI is a subsidiary of Pioneer Pacific College, independent and locally-owned. Founded by two partners who have been part of the Portland food scene for over 25 years, OCI was designed as a culinary institute that puts students first.
Our curriculum emphasizes real world, hands-on training. Our knowledgeable and experienced chef instructors are committed to student success, and teach skills that graduates will actually use in their careers. You will be an active participant in your education, in both classrooms and labs. And you'll have the opportunity to work in our own student-operated fine-dining restaurant. The experience is well rounded and designed to result in graduates who possess the confidence they need to enter the workforce successfully.
Beyond skills training, we focus on a fresh farm-to-table approach to cooking, while teaching food ethics and the business of owning and operating a restaurant in today’s world of sustainable responsibility and practice. It’s a curriculum not often taught, but one we believe to be invaluable.
We take cooking seriously, but we have fun as we go. Our goal is to foster an environment that instills a love for learning, even long after graduation. Your OCI experience may take you out of the classroom and into the wild with trips to forage for mushrooms or for edible inner tidals.
Portland cuisine has become the stuff of legend, and it leads the way for the rest of the nation. Farm-to-table. Seasonal. Focus on local. These are not the exceptions in Portland, but the norm. Looking for the next big culinary trend? Look to Portland. We believe if you can work in Portland, you can work anywhere.
Looking for a great educational experience to launch your culinary career? For job opportunities while going to school, externship placements with your goals in mind, and post-graduate jobs? Then look to OCI.
