Culinary Schools in Jacksonville

For students in culinary school, Jacksonville is one ideal location. The gorgeous Atlantic-coast seaside city is paradise for snowbirds: subtropical climate, wide beaches, fantastic golf courses and much more. For foodies, it's also a great place to be. Thanks to the area's fresh seafood and abundance of tropical fruits, chefs rarely have to cook with frozen crab or use orange concentrate when making fruity cocktails. Jacksonville also has its local specialties, such as Mayport shrimp, along with its share of popular food festivals. The Soul Food Festival, for example, takes place in November every year while the Jacksonville Craft and Import Beer Festival takes over the city's Memorial Arena in May.
