Culinary Education

The Austin Food & Wine Alliance is dedicated to creating meaningful and accessible educational resources to inspire and empower the next generation of culinary artists in Central Texas.

The AFWA’s educational programs are made possible via proceeds from our annual signature events, beneficiary events, and generous community donations.


Culinary Arts Career Conference

The Culinary Arts Career Conference (CACC) is the pinnacle of the Alliance’s efforts in culinary education. The CACC was developed to give Central Texas high school culinary arts students the opportunity to learn and gain inspiration through direct connection to people from a wide spectrum of career paths in the culinary world.
