Learning at Oregon Culinary Institute takes place in all forms, in all venues.

“It was such an awesome experience. It was fully hands on – completely hands on.” – Belinda Enriquez, OCI Graduate Baking and Pastry, Class of 2009

“(The chefs are) all very attentive to every single student and they’re all always available. All of them are experienced and very intelligent. It’s like having a bunch of walking encyclopedias. It’s awesome to be in the kitchen every single day. It gives me the skills I need in a restaurant, and knowledge about almost everything culinary.” – Michelle Ormando, OCI Graduate Culinary Arts, Class of 2007
