The class is for a grade and is needed to graduate if you're in the culinary program

This was part of a school program and isn't available to the public Typical day of training: You go to the classroom (freshman and sophomore year its an actual classroom but junior and senior year its the kitchen) You get a brief rundown of what you're going to be doing that day if you're cooking there is a demo or detailed instructions You do what you're supposed to do When you're done you clean up What I learned: The course trained me on various styles of cooking like traditional french baking or cooking in bulk for a buffet How to use different equipment found within the kitchen
