Everyone knows how expensive studying culinary arts is. Most top US culinary schools can sum up to $60,000. Growing up in Puerto Rico with a humble family I knew I could not make my family go into debt for me. Therefore I looked for the culinary schools options in Puerto Rico. I was a little upset at first, the school's here for the culinary industry are not good. Then I found "La Universidad Del Este", the culinary programs are even accredited by the AFC (American Culinary Federation). I could not be happier with my experience here. Excellent classes, professors/chefs, and class A education for a wonderful price that my family and I where able to afford. The island is very lucky to have this culinary school.
