  • CIA San Antonio:
    A First Taste

    Come to The Culinary Institute of America, San Antonio campus and see what all the excitement is about! During each interactive "First Taste" program, you'll watch a culinary demonstration by our chef-instructors, enjoy tastings of the items prepared, and take the recipes home to try yourself.

    These two-hour events let you explore the best flavors and products of the harvest, featuring dishes that highlight locally sourced ingredients and reflect the seasonal flavors of the San Antonio Farmers' Market. The recipes presented come from the CIA's "At Home" series of cookbooks and change with the seasons, so you'll want to attend our "First Taste" demos again and again!

    As an added bonus, you can apply the $39.95 demo fee to any future class you take at the CIA. Click on the classes below to enroll now! Reservations are required.
