Not Just Cooking

NOT JUST CO KING Skills students learn during a culinary arts course There is way more to being a Chef than cooking. This infographic gives an overview of what good culinary art schools teach. Some of these skills seem obvious, and some might surprise you. But each one of them forms an essential ingredient for creating a successful career recipe. THE OBVIOUS BASICS Basic Techniques Students in culinary arts study the basics of cooking – from smelling flavours to chopping julienne to what colour each spice produces. Techniques for meat, fish and vegetable preparation Each of these is a different science. The chemistry and aesthetics of these foods are taught so students can leverage on this knowledge to create their own recipes. Cooking Techniques and Practice Students learn variety at every stage of cooking and practice them repeatedly until it becomes an instinct! Pastry Making Dessert making is a skill so intricate that the Pastry Chef works in an entirely separate domain! Students are taught to choose the right dessert for the right| meal, along with the art of decorating a dessert. AROUND THE PLATE History & Geography of Cuisine's country Pizza has a history which can be traced through the political revolutions of four countries. Knowledge of how each recipe came to be certainly helps students appreciate the dish a lot more. Culture A good culinary school teaches students a particular cuisine's cultural background so future chefs have the knowledge and the expertise to impress their dlients with a unique advantage! bread s pasta bacon fishfingers pancake crisps chocolate scrambled Basic language and cooking glossary terms eggso yogurt tuna raspberries A few sources say that the word "pizza" is derived from the German old term pizzo, meaning mouthful. This definitely helps students understand the recipe not only from a culinary point of view, but from etymology as well! toast * sal cheese salad Etiquettes At the core of the food industry is hospitality. Training in food service is necessary for chefs to understand how their food is best served. THE ACTION Wine Tasting and Preservation Culinary training is incomplete without learning the art of cataloging wines by tasting and knowing how to preserve their taste for long periods. Visits to Production Sites Students are helped to understand how the ingredients they use in cooking are actually made and processed by visiting the manufacturing units where they are produced. Products and Raw Materials Culinary schools train students in the art of picking the right raw materials from the right place at the right time. Business Management In order to prepare chefs for the real world, students learn how to manage finances, market their services and manage cooks. Learning from the Masters Students at a culinary school are constantly allowed to interact with guest chefs. Learning from experts will not only give students confidence but they can gain some culinary secrets, as well! As you can see, a culinary student needs to be skilled in more than one area. It is as much about cooking as it is about etiquettes, time management, staff coordination and finances. When a student has mastered these diverse skills, he/she is ready to face real world competition with confidence. AIMS EMPOWERING MINOS chickeng ndwiche apple
