The best way to learn to cook is to do it yourself. On this intensive, hands-on course, you will cook, cook, and cook! Your class will be divided into 2 sessions - theory and demonstrations in the morning session, and practical application (cooking) and critique in the afternoon section.

Morning session starting at 09:00

The head chef discusses theory, ingredients preparation, and demonstrates how to cook each dish, discussing flavors, ingredients, substitutions, cooking methods, while you ask questions and take notes.

Afternoon session starting at 14:00

You get to prepare each dish based on recipes, notes taken, and observations. Of course, as you have questions, assistance is provided. By independently preparing each dish, you truly learn how to prepare it. Your creation is then critiqued, and the head chef tells you how to improve it.
