Journeyman Cook looking to give lessons for any age group in Nanaimo, BC

Methodology

I would start by going over the basics and learning what you know. We would start with your knife skills and start by teaching you common cuts such as a julienne or brunoise. From knife skills we would work towards sauces and go over the mother sauces. From there I would ask what you would like to learn, culinary has many aspects to it so I would be interested to know exactly what you would like to achieve from me teaching you. If you were to say general knowledge I would be teaching you common dishes and soups you would find in most restaurants and techniques you could learn to develop your own dishes.

Background

I am a cook with 11 years experience working in a variety of styled kitchens from fine dining to pub food. I have worked under a unique variety of chefs so I have a grasp of most cuisines. I was trained in school in for traditional french style cuisine and plating techniques. I do also have an understanding of butchering and a base knowledge of baking.
