“Chasing Excellence”

 

Rosendale Collective is honored to offer a brand new class in 2019 in collaboration with Former Bocuse d’Or Silver Medallist, Chef Philip Tessier.  This class will introduce you to high level techniques from both Chef Tessier and Chef Rosendale and discuss principles of innovation and efficiency to deploy in your own kitchens.  This may be one of our most inspiring and visionary workshops yet with relentless innovation and new concepts.  Explore their visions about the future of our kitchens and gain insight and tips on how to organize at the highest level.  Though the chefs competed at prominent levels, many of these strategies prove useful to anyone at any level.  

In this exclusive class, the chefs will cover the following:

  • Kitchen innovation & industry trends
  • Creative garnish concepts
  • Bocuse d'Or techniques
  • Future of kitchens
  • The evolution of our craft
  • Organization
  • Creative techniques 
  • How competition can make you a better culinarian
  • The importance of mentorship 
  • How to look for inspiration - what really inspires us?
