The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts is Britain’s leading professional membership association of head chefs, head pastry chefs, restaurant managers and suppliers (associates) providing education, career opportunities and the recognition of talent and skills of current and future hospitality professionals.

Through its broad range of initiatives, RACA also supports young people, colleges and educational institutions by providing unrivalled programmes and apprenticeships through its extensive network of contacts and members while raising the standards and awareness of food, food provenance and sustainability, cooking and service.

Established in 1980, the Academy was granted the Royal prerogative by Her Majesty The Queen in May 2013. This was recognition of its pre-eminence as Britain’s leading professional association.

The Academy is immensely honoured to have His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales as its Patron.
