Do you have the goal of attaining the ranks of Certified Master Chef? It is a level in the industry that few have reached but, make no mistake, it can have a meaningful impact on your career, both in the quality of opportunities one experiences, as well as driving higher monetary compensation for your expertise. But it is not a designation easily acquired.
Historically, this exam has built upon the reputation of being nearly impossible to pass. We aim to change that by offering principles and methodology that anyone can learn. Like any craft, your training is the single biggest influencer as to what the outcome will be. The quality of your learning and direction goes hand in hand with your performance. Rich will share with you his relentless passion for food and the craft of cooking. And you will also learn invaluable strategies on how you can organize your kitchens, as well as how to plan for a training regimen that suits you and delivers results.
This class is taught by Rich, one of less than 100 certified master chefs in the United States. He has over 55 international cooking awards under his belt. He has trained with some of the country's top culinarians and is regarded as one of the country's most highly trained chefs. No one offers the depth of training, combined with his range of skill and passion for teaching. This is not just an investment in preparing for the exam but will deliver a level of training that will help you blossom as a chef.
This three-day workshop covers the following:
- Creating a plan for the exam
- Healthy cooking
- Prep buffet and catering
- Presentation buffet and catering
- Global cooking
- Baking and pastry
- Continental and Northern Europe cuisines
- Market basket
This is a professional hands-on workshop for chefs. Participants will receive a welcome letter with the schedule two weeks prior to the course. All participants will receive an electronic file with recipes and the course material upon completion. We supply all of the food and material for the workshop. This class is a tremendous value.
