PROFESSIONAL COOKING COURSE
This course is meant for students who want to become professional chefs, specializing in Italian cuisine. The aim of the Cooking Course is to prepare students through practice in the kitchen; cooking lessons are hands-on so that they can learn or improve their knowledge and skills in every aspect, from cleaning and cutting to most laborious techniques. Thanks to the many different chefs that come and teach the secrets of their special dishes and their style, the cooking course offers a wide overview on Italian cooking, from traditional and regional recipes to modern and creative cuisine. During each lesson students prepare a complete menu that is served for lunch which includes 4 courses: appetizer, pasta or soup, meat or fish, and dessert. Some lessons are completely dedicated to professional pastry and baking. Every afternoon foreign students attend a 3 hour Italian language lesson taught by Italian teachers, in order for culinary students to be able to communicate in Italian in the kitchen and in everyday life. After graduating this cooking course, students can choose to join a 4 to10 month internship in a top Italian restaurant.
Please remember that for a stay longer than 3 months (or 90 days in Italy) and if you are not part of the European Community it is necessary to apply for a student visa through the Italian Embassy in your country, so it is important to prepare all the documents in time. It is important also to all those students who do not speak or understand Italian to take the Italian language course in the afternoon in order not only to be able to understand what will be done in Italian during the cooking lessons but also when students will leave the school to do the period of internship in the restaurants.
