Monday night was the final dinner for our Professional Culinary Arts Series class. It’s the 9th week of the course, and by the impressive feast that was prepared by the students for their invited guests, you could tell just how much they had all advanced in the class.
The series, taught by Chef Richard McPeake, is designed to follow a typical first semester of chef training. Week by week, the class studies particular topics like Knife Skills, Meats, Seafoods, Vegetables, Moist Heat Cooking, Dry Heat Cooking, the Mother Sauces and ‘Small’ Sauces.
On the final night, students draw numbers to choose their prep teams – partnering up to prepare entrees, vegetables, salads and desserts. They had an hour and a half to prepare the meal for the guests they asked to join them for this final dinner feast for 55 people!
Congratulations to the students of the Pro Series I class! Fabulous job on the dinner, and we wish you the best as you continue your culinary journey, whether it’s on to a job in the industry or an elevated knowledge that you’ll use to prepare dishes for family and friends.
We have another 9-week Pro Series I course on Sundays, 4:30-7:30 p.m., starting March 20, 2016.Â To find out more information and/or register for the series, visit our website here.
