DIPLOMA IN WESTERN-EUROPEAN CUISINE 

The diploma that we present will allow students to enter the world of cooking and the western professional bakery. The aim is to broaden their knowledge in Culinary techniques and improve Western culinary techniques.

We will also dive into the latest kitchen management techniques (preparation of Raw materials, plating and decoration, buffets assembly, cooking methods, design of menus and preparation of letters, etc.)

From the first day, the assimilation of the concepts that are explained in classes are going to be reinforced by practice lessons in the kitchen. In them, the students work in depth by learning different cooking methods and the preparation of certain foods. During the course of the education, the development and the techniques are going to get more complicated. The training will be complemented with other necessary concepts required for the conservation and knowledge of the products, as well as for the understanding of the current cuisine and its history.
