Culinary Arts major

“The USIL Culinary Arts program offers education for a globalized world. I spent a year doing an academic exchange at Haaga Helia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki (Finland) and was able to adapt quickly, thanks to the bilingual, business-oriented education I received at my university. Our teachers are certified by the American Culinary Federation, and they teach us in a methodical, disciplined manner, as is the norm in Europe. After I complete my studies and gain more experience, I plan to go to Finland to open a Peruvian-Finnish fusion restaurant. I’ll prepare dishes such as lomo saltado using elk or reindeer, or ceviche using salmon, as these are popular ingredients of Finnish cuisine.”
