Macomb Culinary Institute
Dining is and always was a great artistic opportunity. -- Frank Lloyd Wright
Good cooking is the basis for true happiness. -- Auguste Escoffier
The creative flourish that distinguishes great architecture also distinguishes the work of great chefs. Like Frank Lloyd Wright, they are innovative, imaginative and often unconventional. But, they also have to know how to peel an onion, poach a salmon and prepare a roux.

Basics and extras
At the Macomb Culinary Institute, students learn knife skills, cold platter (Garde Manger) presentations, menu planning, pastry making, bread baking, food buying, ala carte dining and much, much more. They learn in classrooms, kitchens and in the working restaurant at the college's Center Campus in Clinton Township, the campus where the culinary arts classes are also held. Soon, they will learn in a newly renovated facility that boasts equipment and technology rivaling or surpassing what they will encounter in some of the world's most famous kitchens. Students attending the Macomb Culinary Institute, however, also learn how to nurture that "something extra" that will set them apart in the culinary world.
Excellence and artistry
The quality of the Macomb Culinary Institute is also seen in the credentials and reputations of its faculty.
