Culinary Schools in Milwaukee

Graduates of Milwaukee culinary schools have a vibrant restaurant and food scene awaiting them. Indeed, nothing says Milwaukee more than great beer, crispy brats and spicy mustard, thanks to the German and Polish immigrants who left their mark on the local food scene years ago. Still, Milwaukee is home to a variety of ethnic foods, such as Greek, Indian, and Korean cuisines, and its downtown area features numerous hip and upscale restaurants. There’s also the regular Friday Fish Fry, the annual Food & Froth Festival (featuring more than 200 different beers), and the summer Polish Fest celebrating Polish culture and food.
