    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chef Ross was a wonderful first chef to have. He is knowledgeable, fair and genuinely enjoys teaching us from what he has learned. This course is the best way to begin at the Institute because it breaks down what you thought you knew and makes you learn how to be better.

    Course highlights:

    We learned in this course the basics of french cuisine. The largest points were knife cuts, mother sauces, ratios and general cooking techniques. It is a very in depth class and it is hard to get passed but so worth taking.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice makes perfect. If you are having trouble with Egg day, go practice making eggs. No chef is kidding when they say they have made thousands of something before they became better.
