How do these course work?

The short courses of a single session are practical workshops on various subjects. The length is usually 3 to 5 hours, although there are certain topics that require the session to be delivered in two different days. The usual structure of these workshops is:

  • Welcome café and site visit
  • Explanation of dynamics of the work
  • Application of the corresponding techniques through the development of the course recipes.
  • Tasting of the dish prepared by the Chef
  • Preparation of the packaging to take home the dishes that you have made.

What do you take home?

Your course enrolment kit includes a hat, apron and dishcloth to make you feel at home, without forgetting that you are in a professional environment. You will receive a booklet of notes with recipes so that you can take notes and also at the end of each session, you'll take home with you all the dishes that you have prepared during the workshop.

Once you have completed the specialized course you will receive the appropriate certificate and you will have a selection of photos to remember your haute cuisine experience.
