What is the Hospitality Management and Advanced Food Science Course course about?
We feel sometimes it’s the simple words that explain things better so here goes our informal approach of breaking down the title and explaining each aspect.
The term hospitality means “the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guest, visitors or strangers”.
The hospitality process in a restaurant begins from the moment you walk through the door as this is a cooking course, we will elaborate on that aspect. The hospitality provided by the chefs may not be visible but what they produce is.
The aim of hospitality in this instance is to provide food that is exceptional, food that you never forget the experience and, as a result, you return.
The term management means “the process of dealing with or controlling things or people”.
A restaurant is managed from all aspects whether its front of house (restaurant floor) or back of house (kitchen).
In this course, we will cover the back of house (kitchen) because chefs have a responsibility of managing costs within the kitchen. We will only cover the food costs.
Advanced Food Science
The term advanced food science, also known as molecular gastronomy means “an approach to cooking in which a chef’s knowledge of physics, chemistry and biology allows him or her to experiment with unusual flavour combinations and cooking techniques”. In other words, you learn to use scientific equipment or techniques to create extraordinary dishes.
We are different to other schools in the sense that we don’t offer classroom style teaching, we believe and it has been proven that live training in a kitchen is the best way to learn, thus this course is spilt in three aspects:
You will receive 2 weeks fine dining training and also, 2 weeks Michelin training.
We are the best cooking academy in London so the training you will receive in the school will prepare you to enter a restaurant kitchen.
The first training will be conducted in a fine dining restaurant which will be allocated according to your location/preference of cuisine but subject to availability of restaurant. In a fine dining restaurant, you will need to complete 200 hours which can be spread over 6-8 weeks depending on your commitments.
The second training will be conducted in a Michelin restaurant which will be allocated according to your location/preference of cuisine but subject to availability of restaurant. In a Michelin restaurant, you will need to complete 200 hours which can be spread over 6-8 weeks depending on your commitments.
Whilst training in the restaurant you will get the opportunity to work in some of the best restaurants London city has to offer.
Most importantly you get the opportunity work along with some of the best chefs.
“As I’ve always said, cooking is a philosophy it’s not a recipe – unless it’s a pastry and then it’s chemistry – so therefore it’s not just teaching them how to cook, it’s sharing philosophy and your vision with them. It’s as simple as that. A good chef is a pied piper, they follow him”. Quote by Marco Pierre White
This training is carried out in the best culinary academy school and covering food costings.
