Summary

Basic to Brilliant Cookery Course

Our Basics to Brilliant Cookery Course will take you from the very basics in the first week to bloomin’ brilliant in the second week.

The first week of the course focusses on the basic of cookery.  Students are taught knife skills, food management, kitchen hygiene and menu planning. By the end of the first week, a wide range of useful recipes will have been cooked and each student will have been given every opportunity to grow in kitchen confidence, knowing that they can tackle each and every dish that has been covered.

On the first Thursday evening we have our famous Avenue dinner party where each student is allowed to invite a couple of guests. During the day students will prepare the evening meal ready for their friends to come and enjoy. This teaches students how to cater for larger numbers, whilst also fine tuning their timing skills.

During the second week of the Basic to Brilliant Cooking Course you will be taught more advanced techniques and delicious dinner party food with the same layout as the first week.

Each morning bread, cake and lemonade are made by ‘The Duty Team’ so that by 11 o’clock there is always something to restore the energy levels! After the break the students start cooking in pairs and begin to work from The Avenue Cookbook. The book is easy to follow and is an invaluable reference source long after the course has finished.  Saying this we teach our students to gain a true understanding of food and encourage to cook with out their cookbook and rather use it for inspiration.

The teaching is very flexible so if there are any gaps in knowledge they can easily be filled. No student is ever made to feel inadequate and those who want to brush up on forgotten techniques need to just ask.  The flexibility of the teaching provides an excellent opportunity for students to cook food that they are particularly interested in as well as following popular structure of ideas and recipes.

The Basic to Brilliant Cooking Course is perfect for those who are enthusiastic to cook and want to be introduced to an interesting selection of recipes, techniques and dinner party ideas.
