We aim to show you a whole new level of sous-vide cooking. Go beyond the basics with Rich and elevating your understanding of sous-vide cooking. This class is geared toward taking the fundamentals of the class to the next step. Below is an outline of what we teach in the advanced class that you will not find anywhere else.  Rich is considered an authority on this style of cooking and has taught thousands of chefs and foodies the art and science of cooking sous-vide. 

This class is taught by Rich, one of only 67 Certified Master chef’s in the United States. He has over 55 international cooking awards under his belt. He has applied this technique in large-scale operations like the Greenbrier resort with 15 kitchens on property, as well as full-service independent restaurants. He also has applied the sous-vide technique in prestigious cooking events like the Culinary Olympics and the Bocuse d’Or.   In 2014 Rich was contracted by the Royal Family of Dubai where he performed the technique for the chefs at the Royal kitchens of the Zabeel Palace.
