Culinary Schools in Detroit

Detroit is a metonymy for the American automobile industry, but it's also a place where young chefs and edgy and organic cafés thrive. Being surrounded by freshwater lakes means easy access to top-notch fish, including the famous Great Lakes trout. Regarding sustainable food, locally sourced food and farm-to-table cooking is in vogue in the Motor City: according to the 2012 Zagat Survey summary, 57 percent of Detroiters are willing to pay more for food that is "green." Fresh produce can also be found at the country's largest historic public market, the popular Eastern Market Historic District. Following culinary school, Detroit chefs have the opportunity to join an exciting restaurant industry.
