The prerequisite for every skilled at-home chef, Basic Training Boot Camp gives you the hands-on foundation of knowledge and skill to take you to a higher level of cooking. In this course, you’ll develop a command of classic culinary methods and techniques, including mise en place, station organization, knife skills, soup and stock production, and sauce making. You will also learn and use a variety of dry- and moist-heat cooking methods such as roasting, grilling, sautéing, pan-frying, stir-frying, braising, poaching, and steaming. Basic Training Boot Camp is a “must-take” class if you want to master the basics of cooking, and gain the confidence to experiment with your own creations and grow as a home cook.
As a Basic Training participant, you’ll receive two chef’s uniforms, each with a jacket, pants, and a neckerchief. Paper chef’s hats, side towels, and aprons will be provided in class.
