    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This semester is filled with the fundamentals! You can't go any further in this career unless you know the beginning, which is what this semester is all about! It may seem boring, but if you really pay attention you'll learn a lot and you'll quickly realize this is stuff you can't ever forget. So pay close attention, and don't just throw away information as soon as you've taken the test!

    Course highlights:

    There was so much to learn in the course, I don't even know where to begin! The first thing is how important scaling is, you can't afford to be off one gram when scaling for cakes or other pastries! Then there's ratios, it's very important to learn these and remember them in case you don't have a recipe on hand!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention! Any reading you're given make sure to read it, more than likely you'll be given a pop quiz the next day. Always be prepared, make sure you always have your tools needed and make sure you're in proper uniform! The first semester is the hardest in terms of adjusting to the Culinary Institutes strict rules, but don't worry they loosen up a little the farther along you go.
