Intermediate Cooking Skills Course
This course is aimed at foodies and cooks wanting to take their cooking skills to the next level.
This course is aimed at foodies and cooks wanting to take their cooking skills to the next level – an evolvement of higher level skills training starting with basic recipes and ending with a combination of complex recipes. Includes advanced knife skills, filleting, pairing and deboning fish, meats and poultry. Theory includes menu planning, understanding nutrition and balance of healthy meals. Each day participants work with the chef to test and sample new flavours, ideas and get to work with unusual and out of the ordinary ingredients to prepare delicious meals. Each day progresses onto more challenging and interesting recipe combinations and participants work to creating their own 3-course menu at the end of the course. Please note – this course is suitable for people that have reasonably accomplished cooking skills.
