The world’s most accomplished chefs all have one thing in common — they have mastered the basics. They know how to care for their knives, identify flavours, expose the qualities of vegetables, select cuts of meat, prepare the essential sauces and plate everything with exquisite attention to detail.
The Kitchen Skills series was created to help you develop your fundamental techniques and skills. From the NAIT professional kitchen facility you will gain the basic knowledge and know-how to cook with confidence.
From the professional who wishes to sharpen his or her skills, to the individual desiring to explore a culinary career, or the serious home or hobby chef, you will learn valuable knowledge. For maximum retention of the knowledge and skills presented, the classes are formatted to include lecture, demonstration and hands-on application of each skill set.
Put on your apron, it’s time to get in the kitchen! Knives, equipment and food are provided for classroom use.
Please note that HOS94/CULG210 Kitchen Skills I and HOS31/CULG220 Kitchen Skills II are prerequisites for the other Kitchen Skills courses.
Important: Students are asked to bring an apron, food containers, and grocery bags to take home their tasty creations. The recommended footwear for these courses should be closed toe, non-slip leather shoes. Do not wear loose clothing and jewelry.
