Students will learn about the basic cooking techniques. The student will also learn about the products of meat, poultry game fish and shellfish to comprehend procurement for their quality and freshness. They will be taught the basics of butchery and fabrication of these products. The proper cooking techniques will be then applied to these ingredients. The combined knowledge should enable them to use these items to best manipulate texture and taste to maximum potential, always keeping in mind the evolving culinary scene and current issues (environmental etc) that accompany the use of each ingredient. The course will cover the preparation and preservation process for each of these products as well as the creation of bases, soups, stocks, corresponding juices and basic soups.
Students will master dressing, cutting, preparation of fillets, and specific cooking types for each product during practical sessions. Classic Preparations shall be executed by each student during each laboratory session.
