The Louisiana Culinary Institute (LCI) is the largest culinary school in the South and we are located in Baton Rouge. Our new 40,000 sq ft facility has state-of-the-art equipment and top notch professional Chef Instructors. Although we are a private school we will be open to the public for our weekly Cooking/Leisure Classes.

This group is all about people who are interested in anything culinary and want to learn about different techniques, styles, flavors, and much more! You will receive an apron, cooking booklet with recipes, LCI measurement card, each class is hands-on learning, and you'll be able to bring home your delectable creations. Please look for cooking themes, new classes, and schedules on our website at

I highly recommend this group for anyone that has a passion for food or wants to learn a few new things in the kitchen. We do sell gift certificates year round.  I look forward to meeting everyone and remember to keep cooking!
