Our Culinary Foundations course helps you prepare for employment in today’s food service industry. Learn how to write work plans, use culinary techniques and basic preparation methods, cook in a timely manner and present and taste food products. Develop your fundamental culinary skills through a series of three-hour demonstrations (where you take notes to prepare a work plan for your skills execution) and a four-hour culinary lab (where you implement your work plan to recreate the professor’s demonstration). Participation in both the demonstration and the lab is critical and evaluated.
You must have a full George Brown chef uniform, black safety shoes (non-slip and steel toe) and tools for this course. A uniform package can be purchased at the George Brown College St. James Campus bookstore. You must purchase your shoes and tools separately. The teacher will provide a list of required tools during the first class.
Disclaimer: Continuing Education courses do not have a reading (intersession) week.
