International Cooking and the Cold Kitchen

Heard, Chef.

In the Pro Series 3 Program, you’ll compare and contrast advanced food preparation and cooking techniques from around the world. You’ll also learn how to manage a garde manger where cold dishes are prepared (salads, charcuterie, and so on).

Kick Up Your Culinary Career with our International Cooking Program

Do you already have a background in the culinary arts, but want to expand your horizons? The Chef Apprentice of Culinary Arts Pro Series 2 Program was made for you. You’ll take what you already know to exciting new places and prepare yourself for an entry-level job in a restaurant as a cook or line cook. You’ll learn classical cooking techniques, kitchen operations, food chemistry, and more in this advanced program.

You’ll begin the program in a professional kitchen, learning alongside a chef with years of industry experience. See how a real-world kitchen operates, get a better understanding of kitchen equipment, and learn how to prepare the kitchen for cooking. This one-on-one experience just can’t be replicated in a classroom or with several other students in a test kitchen.


Your International Cooking Program Curriculum

Along with your in-person sessions, you’ll have structured virtual assignments to give you a well-rounded education in the culinary arts. You’ll work with meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables, and more, follow shopping lists, and prepare recipes as directed by your mentor. You’ll document your work as part of a Culinary Portfolio that will be reviewed at the end of the program.

These aren’t random videos or online tutorials you stumble across online–these are structured lessons, focused on giving you the skills you’ll need to further your cooking career. As part of your education, you’ll visit a butcher or fishmonger to learn more about the food you’ll be preparing in your culinary career. You’ll document your experience and include it in your final presentation.
