It provides basic knowledge on culinary arts and introduces the student to the world of techniques. From the very first day, the assimilation of the concepts explained during the demonstration classes is reinforced with practice in the kitchen. During the classes, students work in depth on the main cuts, cooking methods and the making of mother sauces. Progressively, the development of techniques become more complex and the training is complemented with other concepts necessary for the conservation and knowledge of products, as well as the comprehension of current cuisine and its history.       Students will have the opportunity to apply the techniques learnt in the Basic Level course on a gastronomic tour around the different regions of France. Daily work in the kitchens is the key to accomplish the tasks in a natural and instinctive way and allows the incorporation of complex techniques. During the last stage of the certificate, the student takes a Traiteur course, based on catering, which focuses on the preparation of a main course and its garnish. During this exercise, students learn about organization and teamwork.       Respect for the classic techniques is indispensable to understand the evolution and current situation of modern cuisine. Students develop their aptitude for decoration and presentation of the dishes with recipes inspired by menus of the best restaurants. The introduction of local products and ingredients maximizes creativity and opens the student mind. To attain the Diploma, students must pass a final exam consisting of the elaboration of a dish and its garnish, within a specific time frame and respecting the obligatory techniques.
