The culinary museum features a room set up as a diner; another as a country fair; another as a soda shop. One room is an actual stagecoach tavern complete with a pull-down bed with rope mattress. There are exhibits of Howard Johnson's memorabilia and of antique blenders, etc. We also enjoyed exhibits of elaborate cakes, sugar art creations, and Johnson... More

At Johnson & Wales University, you can rest assure that your children will get the best culinary education there is, with two great campuses, one located in Cranston, Narragansett Blvd. and one in Down Town of Providence. To me the best culinary university in the country.

GO to the food museum. The only thing that will disappoint you is the lack of actual food. You will leave the place starving!

Enjoyed touring culinary campus. Cuisinart building and activities interesting and impressive. First week of new term so much youthful excitement and exuberance. Also enjoyed a charming tea restaurant in the city, the "Duck and Bunny". Incredible, unique offerings of small meal choices and beverages.

A growing university with a beautiful campus and state of the art culinary center. In the few years that we've been visiting the university has added playing fields and a concession building as they grow their university teams and offerings.

Wildcat orientation session. Starting off really good so far. Great rates at the hotels if you mention that you are staying for orientation . Great information on what to do while your student is at orientation. I had a good time.

I love everything about this place, however, you must see it for yourself, especially if you're a student trying to find a new school.

This is an excellent culinary school. In fact, it is known nationally and churns out a lot of successful chefs. The only drawback is that it is located in a bad (crime-ridden) section of Providence.

We went for a cooking class a while ago, and really enjoyed it. They are a bit expensive, but the small weekend classes give you a lot of individual attention. We left with some great recipes, and you get a wonderful lunch that you have helped prepare. Ours was the New England cuisine class, so tons of seafood made it... More
