FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD
At Marcel’s Culinary Experience, you will see plenty of faces in the culinary kitchen – the professional chefs and chef educators who are the foundation of the culinary program, the culinary assistants who help our chefs be prepared for class and make the classes run smoothly, and most importantly, you’ll see students, aka, food enthusiasts, learners of all things food, apprentices of fun experiences!

Our students are the secret ingredients in the recipe at Marcel’s. We feel that by focusing on the students, their passion to learn, variety of skills, and interest in food, we emphasize that it’s not just ingredients that make great food: It’s people. At Marcel’s, our kitchen is your kitchen.

Marcel’s culinary team always ensures that each and every guest has a place to learn, watch, and interact with new people and old friends – a place to pull up a chair, gather around the table and discover fabulous food adventures; a place to cook, create, and celebrate.
