Culinary Schools in New Hampshire (NH)

From fine dining at a country inn to a time-honored New England fair to lobster bakes and coffee shops to one of New Hampshire's breweries, the variety is endless. Though New Hampshire is well known for its corn chowder, other favorites grace our kitchen tables from the Granite State, including close to 90,000 gallons of maple syrup produced by its maple industry during just a few weeks each year.

Traditional farmers raised everything from hens to produce, milk to sugar maple trees, while many of today's farmers focus on specialty markets, including but not limited to roses, apples, vegetables, cheese and other dairy products.

Depending on the season, you can visit any number of farms or farmers markets across the state and pick your own raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, pumpkins or apples. Fresh berries are ready for picking early in summer, whereas apples and pumpkins are a fall crop. Take a day outside with your family, enjoy the sun, the fall foliage and bring home a basket or bag of the New Hampshire fruits and vegetables you picked.

If seeing the colors and tasting the flavors of the wonderful local foods available fuels your passion for cooking, consider studying to be a chef. New Hampshire offers instruction in the culinary arts in four programs across the state; highlighted below are the two larger, well-recognized programs.
