Program Introduction

Perfect for students with a passion for professional cookery, this program will give you the fundamental education required to succeed in industry, while equipping you with the skills to supervise your own kitchen.

This program takes a practical approach to teach the theories and concepts that underpin professional cookery, and opens the door to the mastery of classic cuisine techniques. From day one, you begin to develop the basic skills, such as how to hold a knife properly, peel vegetables and prepare a chicken. As the course progresses, techniques become more complex.

In parallel with the practical classes, you’ll become familiar with essential knowledge of the cooking profession such as food safety, hygiene, setting up a kitchen, customer service and team working.

Small-size practical classes of a maximum of 12 students will allow you to work both individually and as a part of a team under the expert guidance and personal attention of our lecturers. Learning in industry-standard kitchens and practising in our fine-dining restaurant Top Chef will help you to perfect your culinary skills.
