ITALIAN CUISINE PROFESSIONAL CHEF TRAINING
Therefore, the mission of FCAS is to provide students with opportunities to succeed in the culinary arts field.
Italian food is the most popular and appreciated cuisine in the world. Italian cuisine is a rich array of flavorful dishes from across the Mediterranean country in southern Europe. Eating an Italian meal is a ritual: a gathering of food, wine, and family. In Italy, culinary traditions are like storytelling, passed down from one generation to the next. There is a rich variety of dishes, using meat, fish, vegetables, bread, pasta, rice, etc. offering not only a rich taste but also a beautiful appearance on the plates, as they are art itself. As even in the finest and most sophisticated Italian recipes the protagonist is the unique taste of each ingredient, it is crucial to learn how to bring it out to its best.
At FCAS, students will be taught by experienced Italian chef instructors, learning from traditional to modern dishes, and they will be exposed to the world’s latest culinary trends, as well as acquire up-to-date information on the culinary business practice.
Through hands-on practice, lectures, demonstrations, as well as field trips, students will acquire the attitudes, knowledge, and cooking skills that are required for starting a career as a cook.
Cooking classes are held in a fully equipped professional kitchen, under the guidance of the instructor, assistants, and interpreters.
Furthermore, the course includes Italian classes. Although the program is taught with an English interpretation service, it is crucial to speak basic Italian, not only for daily use, but also to network with the Italian people, and possibly to work or practice in any Italian restaurant.
The program is specifically tailored for individuals at the beginner level.
Upon successful program completion, students will receive a Diploma in culinary arts.
Students who complete the 2-month Italian Cuisine Professional Chef Training are eligible to apply for the FCAS Restaurant Internship program.
This 1-month program puts equal focus on enjoying the journey of Italian cuisine as well as acquiring the fundamentals of ingredients and food preparation and will introduce students to the fascinating world of the Italian culinary arts.
Students will gain an insider understanding of culinary techniques in a hands-on setting, as most of the program is focused on the practical application of knowledge and skills.
Upon completion of the program, a Diploma will be awarded to each student.
It is possible to extend the 1-month to a 2-month program before course ends.
