Chef In Training (Culinary) - Foundations Weekday
Immerse yourself into the world of Western cooking techniques over 8 sessions where you will explore recipes from different food categories. We will work on precision knife skills and exposure to the ingredients and culinary techniques that are common to us.
The Foundations level is ideal for people who have none or some prior experience to cooking. Comfortably paced, we aim to teach you technical skills rather than just recipes.
At the end of the Foundations Course you will have the ability to create dishes of restaurant quality and will impress your friends and family. If you would like to continue expanding your culinary horizons, we welcome you to the next level of excellence in the Chef in Training Intermediate Course.
Testimonial from a previous participant:
Chef in Training Foundations helped me to alleviate my confidence in cooking with various techniques. The skills taught in class can be applied to all various cuisines and are not limited to a specific culinary style. The Executive Chef was professional in his conduct and ensured that everyone in the class was up to speed regardless of skill and experience. I highly recommend this culinary school to those aspiring to be chefs or seeking to be more confident in their culinary skills. - Jack Chou
