Students seeking increased kitchen confidence will acquire fundamental kitchen skills, execute important cooking techniques, learn about common and uncommon ingredients, and create complex multi-component specialty dishes. All courses are taught in our state-of-the-art ICASI facility by professional chefs with extensive restaurant experience.

Prerequisites: Because of the continuity of skills, it is strongly recommended that Basic Techniques series will be taken in order. Attendance at the first class of a series is mandatory.
