Culinary Foundations HOSF 1210

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.


Course Essentials:

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.
