Content

Cuisine

You will learn the fundamentals of gastronomy in its entirety, and the creative techniques and tools that foster its evolution.

From a classic perspective of stocks, juices, sauces, stir-fries and traditional stews, to those approaches that set trends around the world: contemporary tapas, Japanese cuisine, Peruvian cuisine, Nikkei cuisine, Mexican cuisine, fusion cuisine, signature cuisine, techniques classics, modernization of classicism, revolutionary cuisine, restaurant desserts, etc.

Re-evolutionary cuisine

Thanks to research global cuisine has undergone a change with high gastronomic value around the world.

The ingredients that previously went unnoticed today become important and kickstart an evolution with a lot of development ahead.

Side dishes also become stars, and the staging becomes a fundamental part of each menu, where the customer is both a participant and main actor.

Management and staging
