What is TASTE?

Home | About Us | What is TASTE?
TASTE Culinary Business Academy (TASTE) is an educational institution in Brasov that offers a British BA Degree program with focus on Culinary Business Management.
Inspired by our first academy specialized in International Hotel Management, we have created TASTE Culinary Business Academy, both in academic partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University, UK.
With more than a decade since its opening, American Hotel Academy has more than 90% of its graduates working within the hospitality world, and approximately 30% in managerial or supervisory positions.
However, many students wanted to pursue a career within the culinary industry. Following AHA’s success, and learning from our past challenges, TASTE was born and is steadily catching up to its sister academy.

excel 'Good enough' is not good enough anymore


Professional chefs in the industry are looking for educated workforce as you are reading this. According to Roche’s doctoral thesis about ‘The perceived value of formal culinary education and its relationship with industry success’, formal culinary education is certainly worth the costs.
There are many successful chefs who didn't attend a famous culinary school, among which we can name Jamie Oliver, who graduated from Westminster-Kingsway College. However, that did not limit his potential, nor stopped him from excelling in this industry and become one of the most appreciated chefs out there.
Attending a prestigious culinary institution also comes with great expenses. To this we say “why do costs have to be such a burden for students?”. At TASTE we instead choose to offer a top-quality educational package, that includes both up-to-date and applicable knowledge and a crucial practical component, with a vastly more affordable tuition than similar educational institutions around the world.

Our mission

Our mission is to advance professionally - oriented education and applied skills training with an international perspective in a variety of culinary arts and food business disciplines that are not available at many traditional higher education institutions.
