Culinary Arts


Program Description

During this two-month program, participants will receive a broad and intense education in professional cooking and pastry making. The dynamic course schedule is designed for people wishing to improve their culinary skills or who are directing themselves towards a career in professional gastronomy. The program takes a hands-on approach to cooking techniques, with daily cooking labs supplementing lessons, as well as several field trips to local food production centers and guest lectures from visiting Croatian and international chefs. Students will be provided with the basic knowledge required to begin working in a culinary profession. Students will learn about thermal and mechanical food processing, identifying ingredient quality, coupling seasonings, knife work, creating quality restaurant menus, arranging and serving dishes, professional cooking standards, food portions, food preservation, and the history of gastronomy. Along with the professional skills that students learn during this program, they will also have the opportunity to meet successful chefs working in contemporary gastronomy and form a network with professionals in the industry.

Culinary Practicums

Because we believe that cooking is best learned through hands-on experience, our curriculum is designed such that 80% of class time is dedicated to practicums. The practicums begin with the basics so that students have the opportunity to build their knowledge on strong foundations.

Field Trips

During the program, students will visit several local food production centers and small-scale local farms. The field trips help students better understand the production chain of the food industry, as well as preparation and storage techniques of various types of food, including cheeses, baked goods, meat products, wine, and coffee. Students are introduced to various brands of local produce from which they can learn to distinguish quality products and create contacts with local producers. e67o
