This course focuses on building the skills all chefs need in order to purchase, prepare, cook and serve complex dishes, consisting of a wide array of common proteins. We recommend this course for those students who already have a strong culinary skill set and simply want to enhance their cooking methods and improve their techniques. Please Note: while there are no official prerequisites for enrolling in this course, we strongly recommend that you have either taken our Introduction to Culinary Arts course, or already have a working knowledge of the basics of cooking.

We ask that students please treat their tools responsibly, as the College is not responsible for any lost tools. People working in teams are welcome to share tools if they wish.
Most students already have these consumer items in their own kitchens. If you don’t, don’t worry! These items are available in a pre-packaged tool kit available for sale here on our Online Store!
