At the beginning of this year, FoodA announced its launch of an empowerment program for Nigerians who wish to become great chefs. True to his words, the program kicked off on the 24th of January with a over 20 participants in attendance. What a good way to start the year!
I bet in no time, these students will grow to be among the great chefs ever recorded in the history of cooking because they are learning under the master himself. Do not just take my word for it. The opportunity is still open to all and sundry to be partakers of this once in a life time empowerment program and you will thank me later no doubt.
The program started with the chef introducing the students to the course outline for the month, a light refreshment was served and the the business of the day commenced. Many of you even my self do not know that there are things that need to be done before ever you proceed to cook. These are the nitty gritty of a chefs life and this knowledge differentiates a chef from any random “mama put” on the street. I had been hearing the word “puree” before, but the real meaning and application was made known to me in simple terms at this empowerment program. Some terminologies randomly and frequently used in the kitchen and they should be at the finger tips of any cook.
Food costing techniques and method was taught as well as stock control and these amongst others makes cooking easier and faster. The opportunity is still available as more people are registering here. Do not miss it. Things that were taught includes:
- First things to do before cooking;
- Do’s and don’t in the kitchen(very important);
- 10 must know cooking terms;
- Knife skills
- Food costing;
- Stock control;
- Customer relation;
- Character of a chef; and many more
Among the things to be taught subsequently includes; different Appetizers, Chinese dishes, Indian dishes, Italian dishes, French dishes, American dishes, Nigerian dishes, as well as world class meals such as Rice Risottos, sweet and sour pork, chicken nugget, conscious, jambalaya rice and many more for just a token.
Prove your detractors wrong and achieve something tangible this year that will be beneficial all your life. And in case you can not make it to the program because of your work schedule or you live afar off, you can order the the detailed eBook here.
