How CAST Alimenti leverages AI for Innovative Learning

Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing every aspect of life, and the culinary arts are no exception. At the forefront of this exciting evolution stands CAST Alimenti, a renowned culinary school in Brescia, Italy, known for its commitment to practical and cutting-edge education. With the launch of “AI made in CAST,” we have unveiled a game-changing virtual assistant specifically designed to empower students, alumni, teachers, and scholarship holders.

This innovative tool goes beyond a simple digital archive by integrating a powerful algorithm. Imagine asking a question about any culinary topic, and instantly receiving precise and relevant information from CAST’s vast collection of curated resources, including books, handouts, recipes, and conference proceedings. The algorithm doesn’t just provide answers; it understands your intent and guides you through the knowledge base, ensuring you find the exact information you need efficiently.

This development follows CAST’s commitment to embracing emerging technologies. Notably, the vision behind “AI made in CAST” stemmed from the “Artificial Intelligence, Intelligence in the hands” conference organized by CAST last fall.

The conference, coordinated by the late Dario Mariotti, highlighted the potential of AI in the culinary field. We dedicate this innovation to Dario’s memory, believing he would be proud to see his foresight translated into a concrete tool that enhances learning and fosters innovation within the culinary community.

Here’s how “AI made in CAST” benefits various users:


  • Personalized learning: Get instant answers to specific questions, tailoring your exploration of the knowledge base to your individual needs and interests.
  • Time-saving efficiency: Eliminate the hassle of manually searching through vast resources. Quickly find the information you need to excel in your culinary studies.
  • Deeper understanding: Gain a comprehensive perspective on topics by accessing relevant resources curated by culinary experts.


  • Stay connected: Continue to access CAST’s valuable resources long after graduation, staying up-to-date on the latest culinary trends and techniques.
  • Enhance your career: Use the platform to research and refine your skills, keeping your knowledge base sharp and competitive.
  • Expand your network: Connect with other alumni and engage in collaborative learning through the platform’s potential future social features.

Teachers and Scholarship Holders:

  • Streamline lesson planning: Easily find relevant materials to enrich your classes and presentations, saving valuable preparation time.
  • Support student learning: Guide students toward specific resources through the AI assistant, fostering deeper understanding and engagement.
  • Focus on personalized guidance: With students equipped to find information independently, you can dedicate more time to personalized feedback and mentorship.

By harnessing the power of AI, CAST Alimenti is creating a dynamic and personalized learning environment. “AI made in CAST” is not just a tool; it’s a testament to the school’s dedication to continuous innovation and its commitment to nurturing the next generation of culinary leaders.
