Our team’s commitment to providing excellent technology driven culinary education has taken us to new levels of excitement about education in this modern learning environment.
For the first time in chef education, we are truly bringing the classroom to your kitchen.
All of our learning modules are taught menu based. What this means is that you are taught a menu using the principles and the theory that you be studying is already integrated. The best part is that you can eat everything from the menu that you prepare and nothing is wasted. It also ensures you get to practice over and over again with new recipes and using techniques which will improve with your practice over time.
One of the really exciting parts is all the recipes are designed in such a way that you can increase the numbers, so if you are practicing at home, you can invite your friends or family around and simply increase the menu to the correct portions and have enough for everyone whilst testing your new skills. If you are cooking for your family, you can simply increase to include everyone and do not have to make a separate meal. Now that’s what we call an excellent way to study.
Whilst studying with the online theory component with us you will feel like part of a college without having to get out of your Pajamas…. We do have strict dress code rules for our kitchen practicals though and full kitchen uniform will need to be worn when practicals are being completed.
Our 360° learning system means you will feel like part of the college as though you were attending the college on daily basis. Each new student is allocated to an instructor who will be responsible for ensuring you enjoy the full benefits of online study.
Our courses include videos, full course instruction, chats with your instructor, chats with your fellow students, discussion forums, live streaming from our kitchens, webinars and group projects. We have combined the best practice from around the world and made it better.
We have an extensive range of instructors who are all industry experts in their field and able to answer even the most advanced food questions.
Once you enroll with International Culinary Studio, you will receive your starter pack, which includes a Textbook, which can be used as additional reference. We do recommend though that your start your own library whether it is books or eBooks, these will assist you when having to design menus and increase your knowledge considerably. Our chef instructors are all avid recipe book readers and chose these over novels every time.
We recommend becoming a member of your local Chefs Association and getting involved in the events that take place. This form of networking especially when you are studying from home enables you to get to meet chefs in the industry and keep up to date with the latest news, trends and industry best practice.
We also recommend that you try to eat in as many different types of restaurants during your course, so you get to become an expert in your field. You can “steal with your eyes and taste buds” whilst all the time improving your own repertoire.
Our online “e-portfolio” means, your CV (curriculum vitae) will always be ready to be forwarded for potential jobs.
