Culinary arts is the art of preparing, cooking, presenting and serving food in a professional and attractive way. Even though cooking is taught as a paper titled ‘Food Preparation’ in the hospitality/hotel management courses, unique programmes that focus on culinary arts are rare.

Candidates who have studied culinary arts as a special subject often get placed as chefs in major restaurants and hotels. Besides, specialists in culinary arts are hired by the Indian Navy, flight kitchens, hospitals and railway catering services.

Applications are invited for MBA (2022–24) and BBA (2022–25) programmes conducted by the Indian Culinary Institute that functions under the aegis of Ministry of Tourism, in Tirupati and Noida, in association with the Indira Gandhi National Tribal University.

The online applications could be submitted until 30 June.
