Basic Cuisine Certificate
The Basic Cuisine program opens the door to the adventures of French cuisine. From Day One, you begin to master the basic skills : from how to hold a knife properly, to how to peel vegetables or how to truss a chicken. As the term progresses, techniques are layered on one another, and become more complex. Demonstrations become more menu-oriented, incorporating such elements as organization, preparation, balance and timing.
As a solid grounding in basic cuisine, this program is for beginners and experienced students alike. Beginners develop the techniques they need for later semesters and experienced students fortify the knowledge and skills they already have.
Basic Cuisine is the first step, followed by intermediate and superior in completing your Cuisine Diploma.
