Our Pro Kitchen program not only offers the benefits of exposure in the Hot Kitchen but also allows for international acknowledgment of that time and the experience you gained here under the guidance of our talented team of culinary instructors. The program focuses on teaching all the fundamental techniques of cooking & food handling and prepares students to become professional chefs (entry-level) in any restaurant kitchen globally.
Students will spend approximately 70% of their time learning culinary techniques (French classical) with the remainder of the program devoted to the application of these acquired skills to international cuisines and pastry techniques. All subjects are developed and taught in a practical environment (90% hands-on) where students will be able to learn, understand, create and develop their skills in cooking. The program ensures that students gain skills individually and as a group; by the end of the program, all students will have increased knowledge of food and preparatory skills, have team management and leadership skills, and finally have developed time management and organisational skills.
