"It's a very fast-paced, condensed culinary education that spans everything from basic cooking techniques, basic soups and sauces and stocks. We spend some time on pastry. We spend some time on wine curriculum … Then we go right into the kitchen. All the students get to prepare things – they get hands-on experience."
