About Stella Culinary

Stella Culinary is a versatile culinary concept lead by Chef Jacob Burton that specializes in recipe R&D, online education, hands on cooking classes, conceptually themed pop-up dinners, and custom dining experiences.

Our website's purpose is to be an ongoing educational site. Our flagship show, The Stella Culinary School Podcast, strives to replicate the same lectures you would find at a top rate culinary school, starting with the most basic concepts, with each subsequent episode building on the last. These lectures are reinforced by in-depth, HD video series, such as knife skills, kitchen prep and cooking techniques. You can reinforce your knowledge by taking a quiz, asking a question on the Stella Culinary Forum, or even submitting "home-work" assigned at the end of most audio lectures.

Unlike regular culinary schools, Stella Culinary is always growing and evolving. In a normal culinary school, you're expected to get through a certain amount of curriculum in a defined period of time. Stella Culinary aspires to grow with you, adding fresh content on a weekly basis, much of which is spawned from questions and requests from passionate cooks like you.

All of the recipes offered on Stella Culinary have been tested by the Stella Culinary Team and certified by Chef Jacob. This, however, should in no way inspire you to follow our recipes. In fact, the whole purpose of this site is to give you the knowledge and techniques required to create your own recipes -- It's the difference between learning how to read music and how to write a song, or even a symphony.

Stella Culinary is located in Truckee, California, and is part of The Cedar House Sport Hotel.
