Love at first bite


Founded simply as a place for homegrown chefs to improve their craft, Kearney Culinary Academy began. KCA planted its roots in historic downtown Kearney, Missouri, and has since blossomed to become a successful and highly sought-after culinary school and catering company.

Kearney Culinary Academy provides kids’, peer, and chef demo classes, catering, private parties, and offers chef-prepared meals and baked goods daily at The Market. Cooks, chefs, instructors, students, corporate team builders, and ordinary food-lovers from all around visit KCA to make food, friends, and memories—and learn a technique or two in the process!
