Pro Chef Series

The Professional Chef Series is designed to teach you the culinary foundation necessary to launch your career, whether the objective is to work in a kitchen, open your own food related business, change your career, or expand your knowledge to make you the best cook you can possibly be. Students will receive a certificate of achievement upon completion of each series. If you are serious about getting a professional culinary school level of instruction, this series is geared towards you.

Professional Chef: The Foundation, meets once a week for 24 weeks. This course covers Classical French Cooking techniques, as they apply to classic and contemporary dishes.  The chef will give a lecture, usually with a demonstration, and then the students will prepare the dishes, working in teams of 2, with a limit of 12 students to a class. The chef will provide guidance as you work, teaching you tricks of the trade as you progress.  The class will present the dishes at the end of class and taste them along with the chef, who will educate your palate and inspire your imagination. We want you to gain knowledge of not just how to perform all basic cooking techniques but also the kitchen science behind our methods.  Culinary confusion will be transformed into kitchen confidence, and you will leave knowing how to make your ingredients yield maximum flavor.
