Professional Culinary Courses for Aspiring Foodies Looking to Become Successful Entrepreneurs
Finding a career that you actually enjoy is not always possible for everyone. But, don’t let that discourage you from thinking big! There is no better time than the present to start your own business. And, there is no better industry than hospitality.
While it’s true that many industries are struggling, the hospitality industry is growing. Owing to 21st-century lifestyles, consumer spending, and corporate profit, the hospitality industry has grown in leaps and bounds over the past two decades. Contrary to what some say – food matters! Many foodie entrepreneurs are rushing to open their own restaurants or catering businesses. If you are serious about jumping on the foodie bandwagon, here’s what you’ll learn with the professional culinary courses at Chefs Training & Innovation Academy.
All our culinary courses begin with a classic culinary foundation and understanding, such as basic cuisine, knife skills, cooking techniques, artisan bread baking and pastries, chocolate making, cake decorating, food plating, recipes and how to scale them, nutrition science, and fish and meat cooking. Because cleanliness plays such a huge role in the kitchen, a part of our professional culinary courses covers the importance of safety and sanitation in kitchens and restaurants.
However, professional culinary courses teach you so much more than just how to master the perfect paella with shrimp and squid. As the culinary guru of the kitchen, not only are you responsible for all the duties that come with the kitchen, but you will also be working closely with a skilled team that will be under your supervision. As you can imagine, this will require excellent communication and management skills. Fortunately, our professional culinary courses cover the entire business aspect of the hospitality industry, such as labour management, menu planning, cost control, ordering, profits, and service contracts. Basically, you will learn how to run a restaurant or catering business.
There are a handful of great business opportunities, but if you’re passionate about food and are hungry to make your mark on South African soil, then there’s no better choice than to enrol in one of the professional culinary courses at CTIA. We offer an academic platform where aspiring foodies are turned into successful chefs and entrepreneurs. Contact us today to find out more.
