Our Culinary Foundations course helps you prepare for employment in today’s food service industry. Learn to write work plans, to use culinary techniques and basic preparation methods, to cook in a timely manner and to 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 are critical and evaluated.
You will be required to have a full George Brown chef uniform, black safety shoes (non-slip and steel toe) and tools for this course. The uniform package is available for purchase at the George Brown College St. James Campus Bookstore, but the cost of the uniform package, shoes and tools are not included in the course fee. The teacher will provide a list of required tools during the first class.
